SHELL LAKE, Wis. (AP) - A northwestern Wisconsin judge has ordered a man not to have any more children until he catches up on past due child support payments.
Judge Eugene Harrington also told John Butler that within three minutes of meeting any female, he must tell her that he's a convicted felon and has unpaid child support.
The Duluth News Tribune says the 28-year-old Butler earlier pleaded guilty to felony charges of failing to pay support for more than 120 days in 2011.
The sentence is similar to one handed down in Racine County by Judge Tim Boyle. Last month, Boyle sentenced Corey Curtis not to have a tenth child until he could afford to take care of his nine children. But Boyle's order didn't include the twist of notifying women of a criminal past.
