The Feds Are Pushing For Jail Time In Stevie J’s Child Support Case After Stevie Admits To Missing Drug Tests And Withholding Financial Information.
Y’all know I’ve been following everything that’s been going on with Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta’s Stevie J these days very closely. He has the two young women claiming that he is the father of the children that they are carrying. AND a slew of other woman coming out of the woodwork MAD AS HELL AT Stevie J and they are not taking it anymore!
Well it seems like the self-proclaimed “Good Guy” has some serious legal troubles, as well. We all knew about the million dollar child court case against him. Well, it seems like Stevie has not been playing by the rules, but who thought he would. Bossip is exclusively reporting that Stevie went to court this past Thursday and apparently has been messing up so bad that the Feds are fed up! AND they are pushing for jail time!
“We are seeking an incarceratory sentence,” federal prosecutor Kathleen Reilly told the judge. “This is a case where there is a pattern of noncompliance…I think he’s been afforded repeated opportunities, but has failed to take this seriously.”
But his attorney Xavier Donaldson claimed that Stevie had been turning over his finance information every month to his probation officer and travelled to film his reality show. He acknowledged that Stevie missed the drug tests, but said he’d passed his most recent test on April 28 with flying colors.
It also emerged at the hearing that Stevie paid just a quarter – or $25,000 – of the $100,000 he promised to pay at his last court date April 10. Donaldson, Stevie’s lawyer, said his client hadn’t received any more money since his last court appearance, but was working with Stevie’s production company to get more money advanced. Stevie’s other sources of income, like royalties, were going directly to the mothers of his other children, Donaldson said.
Donaldson argued that it made no sense to lock Stevie up for what he said amounted to minor criminal behavior.
But the Judge wasn’t trying to hear all that!
….Judge Crotty said enough was enough, and said it was “troublesome” that Stevie was still not up to date on his child support. He ordered Stevie to hand over his income information to his probation officer immediately and to return to court in two weeks for possible sentencing.
