The Eyes of Texas

A Texas judge has sentenced Clifford Hall to six months in prison for delinquent child support payments. Hall thought he was making the payments, but a clerical error by his employer kept the money from reaching the child's mother. When Hall found out about the error, he not only made sure the back payments got to her but gave her an extra $1,000. That didn't satisfy the judge, nor the appellate court which upheld the ruling.
