RACINE (WKOW) -- A judge has ordered that a Wisconsin father of nine can not have any more children until he can show that he can provide for them.
Racine County prosecutors say 44-year-old Corey Curtis, who fathered the children with six women, owes nearly $100,000 in back child support and interest.
The Journal Times says Judge Tim Boyle sentenced Curtis on Monday to three years of probation for failing to pay child support, with the condition that he is not to procreate until he can show he can support his children.
The Wisconsin Supreme Court in 2001 upheld an appeals court ruling that affirmed a similar probation condition in Manitowoc County. The justices ruled that David Oakley's constitutional right to procreate wasn't eliminated because he could still reproduce, if he supported his children.
