A deadbeat dad with delinquent child support payments is hardly news. However, a 29-year-old man in Tennessee is certainly an exemption. The minimum wage-earning guy currently has 20, possibly 21, children, according to WVLT in Tennessee. Desmond Hatchett told WVLT he wasn’t out to set a record, but he, in fact, holds such a thing in Knox County Juvenile Child Support Court. Hatchett’s children range in age from newborn to 11 years old. There are at least 11 mothers. Constitutionally, there is nothing the state can do to limit him from having more. The mothers of Hatchett’s children are supposed to get anywhere from $25 to $309 a month, but when his paycheck is garnished amongst them all, some women only get a $1.98 a month.—BB
