Deadbeat dad sentenced for owing $18,000 in child support

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Mississippi Attorney General's Office.

Doyce Navada Walley, 47, of Lincoln County, was sentenced Monday for his failure to pay $18,000 in child support, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

Walley pleaded guilty to felony failure to pay child support before Lincoln County Circuit Court Judge Michael Taylor. He admitted that he has failed to pay $18,000.00 in past due child support.

Judge Taylor sentenced Walley to five years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections with five years suspended on supervised probation, so that he could pay the $18,000 he owes. Walley will be required to pay at least $300 monthly in arrears. Judge Taylor also ordered Walley to pay all costs of court, as well as a $100 fine.

“This prosecution represents our strong commitment to the children in our state who deserve the financial support of their parents and we thank Judge Taylor for reminding our deadbeat parents that there is no hiding place from their responsibilities in Mississippi,” said Attorney General Hood.

This case was investigated by Kynda Walker and prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Kimberly Purdie of the Attorney General's Child Desertion Unit.

William Carey came from destruction to full restoration. Sophomore Cassidy Monk says, “The lord has just delivered us from such a tragic event..."
