ELYRA, Ohio (CBS Cleveland) — A Lorain County Probate Court judge has banned a local man from having children for an extensive period of time because of the almost $80,000 of back child support he owes to his four existing kids.

The mandate was issued Wednesday as part of a five-year probation for 35-year-old Asim Taylor, according to the Cleveland Leader. He was reportedly in court after pleading guilty last year to his failure to pay up.

Taylor was initially indicted in August 2011 after racking up $78,922.12 in unpaid child support, though his guilty plea was not entered until September of last year.

His representation plans to fight the order issued by Judge James Walther.

The Leader reported his attorney, Doug Merrill, feels the judge is “overstepping,” and added that he is punishing Taylor for being a man of limited financial means.

Merrill also noted that abstention would be the only way to fully comply with the order, and reportedly deemed the mandate a violation of both his client’s privacy and right to choose.
