28.Feb.2010 In Florida 7 year old boy can be father
The latest deadbeat dad story today seems to come out of Channel 13 in Florida. It is:
The state wants deadbeat dad to pay for the child of a woman he’s never met, and is likely impossible of fathering?
“I’m 22, just turned,” said Rusty Cole. I was born in ’87. The child was born in ’95. But according to records, Cole owes child support for a child born when he was just 7 years old.(and conceived when he was only 6 it would seem).
It appears to be an obvious case of mistaken identity, something that happens quite often, but for Cole, it’s a mistake keeping him from thousands of needed dollars.
For weeks, Cole e-mailed, made phone calls and even went to the Florida agency in person to protest, but he was told a child born in 1995 was due money, and Cole needed to pay.
He was told: "Oh, yes, we have it on here that you are the father".
I guess next time Cole should keep his diaper on when he meets a Florida woman?
