Sailor Ordered To Pay $240 Monthly For Boy’s Support
WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) _ A man who objected to his wife’s artificial insemination and then was sued for divorce has been ordered to pay child support for her 1 1/2 -year-old son.
Lake County Circuit Judge Terrence J. Brady ordered John N. Adams, 36, to pay $240 a month to his wife, Ritaray, 23.
In a paternity hearing last month, Adams had objected to the artificial insemination as ″the same as sleeping around″ and argued that he should not be held legally responsible for the boy’s care.
But Brady ruled on April 21 that Adams, a physician’s assistant in obstetrics-gynecology at the Glenview Naval Air Station, was legally responsible for the child.
Adams said he would appeal that decision as well as the suport ruling made Monday. His attorney, Miriam F. Hunter, said the ruling left him saddled with $42,000 in debts, mostly run up during his three-year marriage.
Mrs. Adams had sought $266 a month in child support.
