Former Bengals Receiver Arrested for Failure to Pay Child Support

By Sheryl Rentz on April 24, 2009

A judge in Cincinnati has ordered former Bengals wide receiver Darnay Scott to be arrested after Scott missed a court appearance in his child support case. According to this UPI news report, the 36-year-old Scott was scheduled to appear in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court to face two charges of failing to pay child support. The judge ordered Scott’s $5,000 bond revoked and issued an arrest warrant. Scott apparently owes $10,686 in arrears to his two daughters, ages 11 and 6.

When one parent fails to pay his or her required child support payments to the other parent, the amount owed in back payments are known as arrearages. Pennsylvania has very strict laws that make punishments for offenders extremely severe. Parents who do not pay their child support arrears can face stiff penalties including jail time, driver’s license and passport suspension, bank account seizure and reporting to credit agencies. When a parent owes arrears and refuses to pay them, you can file an enforcement application with the court. Also, Pennsylvania child support laws allow for imposition of penalties once a child support enforcement application has been filed.

If you are owed child support payments, or if you are a parent who has not paid child support but would like to make that payment and clear your record, please call the Law Offices of Sheryl R.
