Man receives 1-year sentence for failing to pay child support

September 15, 1998

A Baltimore man was sentenced in Carroll Circuit Court yesterday to one year behind bars for failing to pay child support for his two children, who live in the county.

James R. Humphreys Sr., 38, pleaded not guilty but agreed to accept the prosecutor's statement of the facts.

Humphreys was sentenced to three years in jail. Two years of the term were suspended, and he was ordered to report to the county jail Jan. 14. If he complies and remains current on support payments of $147 a week, he may ask the court to modify his sentence before reporting to jail.
