'ADEL, Ga. A Georgia man spent more than a year behind bars for failing to pay child support for a child that wasn't his, but he was released after DNA tests showed he wasn't the father.

Frank Hatley, 50, had been jailed since June 2008 for not making payments, but two separate DNA tests in the last nine years showed he was not the father of the boy, who is now 21.

Southern Center for Human Rights attorney Sarah Geraghty won Hatley's release at a hearing Wednesday in Superior Court. A court order has also relieved him of his financial obligation to the Georgia Department of Human Resources.

"State child support officials have shown extraordinarily poor judgment in Mr. Hatley's case," Geraghty said.'

On January 3, 2007, the attorney for Child Support attempted to put me in jail for asking a question about my child support. Used profanity towards me and of course you know he got it back! Judge Perkins stood up and advised the ass hole that I had a right to ask a question and that he would answer them. I wrote a letter to Chuck Reddick, who would not return a response or call. Right now, all I have to say is that Reddick must go and should have been gone. As a result of his stupidity, the county will suffer in an already messed up economy. Mr. Hatley, get ready for your money, I support you.

they made my husband pay for a child that was not his, and ordered him to be a father to a child he had never had anything to do with. They made him pay for DNA tests to prove the child wasn't his. They didn't stop there they made him bring in the real father, not the childs mother him. During all this time he was having to pay support on the kid. This was in the great city of Cookeville, TN! If you ask me the judge shoud have to give him back every penny he spent on lawyer fees and DNA tests and every freakin dime he put out in child support for a child that he proved not to be his.
