A Wisconsin judge ordered a 44-year-old father of nine (Yes, NINE) children to stop procreating and begin paying child support, The Smoking Gun reports.

Circuit Court Judge Tim Boyle told Corey Curtis (pictured above) at his sentencing on Monday for bail jumping and failure to pay child support that he most keep it in his pants as a condition of his three-year probation term. Curtis owes more than $90,000 in child support to the six mothers of his children. Boyle ruled that he will have to pay all of his child support before he can have child number ten. (As if he actually needs a tenth)

“It’s too bad the court doesn’t have the authority to sterilize,” said Judge Boyle. “Common sense dictates you shouldn’t have kids you can’t afford.”

According to WDAF-TV in Kansas City, Mo., “the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled in 2001 that courts have the ability to put conditions regarding procreation in a probation sentence.” It is not clear what the punishment would be if Curtis popped out another kid. It may likely result in a jail sentence.

Over the past 11 years, Curtis has been arrested numerous times for failure to pay child support. His convictions include passing bad checks, criminal damage, and burglary.

Perhaps the most serial baby maker is Desmond Hatchett of Tennessee. Hetchett, 33, asked a Tenn. court to ease his payments because he was struggling to survive off his minimum wage job. Some of his mothers get as little as $1.49 per month in child support.

Here is a little background on deadbeat dads:

As previously reported by Newsone, data from a 2009 Census report (the last date that statistics are available), “About half (46.8 percent) of parents owed child support in 2007 received the full amount, while nearly one-third (29.5 percent) received only a portion of the total due and about one-quarter (23.7 percent) received none of the child support they were owed.”

Of this number, Black children receiving TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), through their custodial parents was dramatically higher than other ethnic groups:  “Among white, non-Hispanic children in families, 22.4 percent lived with a custodial parent. The proportion of Black children in families with a custodial parent was 48.2 percent. Among children of other races, including American Indians and Alaska Natives, and Asians and Pacific Islanders, 16.1 percent lived in a custodial-parent family. Approximately one-quarter (25.4 percent) of Hispanic children lived with a custodial parent.”

Unfortunately, unlike Wisconsin, a judge cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies. But they can keep him in jail–or court–until he mans up and pays all of the mothers of his children.
