From Detroit’s WXYZ Action News:

The State of Michigan is ordering a Detroit man to pay tens of thousands of dollars, or go to prison. The reason? He owes back child support for a child that everyone agrees is not his.

“I feel like I’m standing in front of a brick wall with nowhere to go,” said Carnell Alexander.

He says he learned about the paternity case against him during a traffic stop in Detroit in the early 90s. The officer told him he is a deadbeat dad, there was a warrant out for his arrest.

“I knew I didn’t have a child, so I was kind of blown back,” said Alexander.

The state said he fathered a child in 1987, and ignored a court order to pay up. It was the first Carnell had heard of the court order. He’d never even met the child.

“And when you were telling them in court – that it was not my child?” “They told me it was too late to get a DNA test,” said Alexander.
