The third case that was introduced included a man that was imprisoned in jail a few weeks prior. The prisoner argued his case, telling the judge that he was not ready to work since he was in jail, and consequently had no wage to pay for child support. He also stated that in his current situation he could not pay for the current child support and wished to lower it. In the wake of taking a gander at the past installments the detainee made through the court, it uncovered that before he was imprisoned he had made one installment to the mother of the child before being imprisoned. He asserted that he was out of work since he was terminated from his job because of criminal records, and has showed proof of termination, an email form his boss expressing that the company had to let him go. All installments had ceased after the initial payment. The judge agreed with the detainee that in his current position he had no way to pay for the child support and the judge lowered the amount of child support required. The judge also implied that failing to pay for the new payments would lead to more severe consequences.
