A 12-member jury in Jackson County recently convicted a Lawrence County man for failing to pay his child support in a case tried in Jackson Circuit Court.
Jackson County Prosecutor Amy Marie Travis says Eric Lewis was accused of being delinquent in his court ordered child support obligation in excess of $33,000.
Travis says nonsupport of a dependent child is a class C felony in Indiana if the amount of delinquent child support due from the defendant is at least $15,000.
Lewis could face two to eight years in prison and may be fined up to $10,000. He will be sentenced at a later date.
