Father gets probation for failure to pay support for three children

April 08, 1997|By Mike Farabaugh | Mike Farabaugh,SUN STAFF

A former Westminster-area man who failed to pay child support for his three children between November 1995 and November 1996 was placed on five years' probation after pleading guilty in Carroll County Circuit Court yesterday.

According to the terms of the plea arrangement, Daniel D. Taylor, 34, of Baltimore, was given a three-year suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay $105 child support and $95 weekly toward arrears of nearly $23,700, on condition that the defendant immediately pay $1,000 and sign over a $4,000 bond to the Carroll County Bureau of Support Enforcement.

Judge Francis M. Arnold waived court costs, noting that he would prefer seeing Taylor's money go to the children.

Taylor, who owns a home improvement business, was in jail on unrelated charges between 1991 and 1993 and allowed the back support payments to mount without telling the Bureau of Support Enforcement.
