Father-of-four Asim Taylor owes nearly $100,000 in child support and a judge has finally decided that enough is enough.
Taylor, 35, from Elyria, Ohio, was sentenced to an additional five years' probation last Wednesday for his failure to support his four children.
He currently owes more than $96,000 in back payments.
If Taylor has another child within his probationary period, he faces up to a year in jail.
According to the Lorain County Chronicle-Telegram, Judge James Walther said, "I put this condition on for one reason and one reason alone. It’s your personal responsibility to pay for these kids."
Taylor's lawyer, Doug Merrill, argued that Walther's judgement infringes on his client's basic human rights, including his right to procreate and engage in sexual intercourse.
“The court is now stepping into his bedroom,” Merrill said.
Judge Walther has agreed to remove the ban if Taylor can prove to the court that he is supporting his four current children.
After the hearing, Taylor insisted that he was not a bad parent.
“I take care of my children,” he said. “I just don’t pay them through child support.”
Similar court judgements have previously been upheld by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
