Failure to Pay Alimony Landed Man in Prison for 14 Years

By Sheryl Rentz on August 5, 2009

A Philadelphia man, who spent 14 years in prison for failing to pay about $2.5 million in alimony, was finally freed. The man, who requested a petition for freedom, is now 73 years old, according to this UPI news report. The man was sent to prison for contempt of court in 1995 after failing to deposit the money in a court-controlled account. The money was to be used for alimony payments to his ex-wife.

The presiding judge then apparently suspected that the man hid his funds from his ex-wife. The man on the other hand said that a poor overseas investment left him unable to make a deposit. The free man, who used to be a corporate lawyer before his incarceration, is considering trying to get his law license back and teach for a living.

Alimony usually varies depending on several types of circumstances and upon the ruling of the family court. In order to ensure that you have the best representation during an alimony hearing you should contact an experienced Philadelphia alimony attorney for assistance.
