My head is really spinning right now. Remember the Tennessee man who impregnated a large portion of Knoxville’s female population–and reportedly fathered 30 children in the process? Well the facts are finally coming in and it appears that the guy was NOT in court as the media has reported and he does NOT have 30 kids. He still has a LOT but not 30 kids.
The story of Desmond Hatchett’s fertility–and his inability to pay child support–came back in the news this week after a Memphis TV station reported that the 33-year-old “was back in court this week” seeking the state’s help with his support payments. The Los Angeles Times noted that Hatchett is “struggling to make ends meet on his minimum-wage job.”
All of this is a HUGE surprise to Hatchett, who has been locked up for the last 33 MONTHS!
THAT’S RIGHT! Check out Desmond in the picture above in a Tennessee Department of Correction photo.
Hatchett was jailed after a judge revoked his probation in August 2009.
Hatchett had been sentenced to 6 years in prison for aggravated assault, but had the majority of that term suspended because of “enhanced probation.” He quickly violated his probation terms by getting arrested for domestic violence, violating curfew, and lying about his whereabouts to his probation officer.
Now imprisoned in the Morgan County Correctional Complex, Hatchett’s sentence is scheduled to expire in November 2014. He has lost two parole bids, most recently in December 2011. And, like other Tennessee inmates, he is not allowed
conjugal visits SEX in jail! THANK GOD!
Hatchett has a “very long and serious criminal history” that includes “multiple assaults, multiple thefts, aggravated assault, multiple evading arrests, and several driving assaults,” according to a probation violation report. He has also been collared on narcotics charges and has shown “contempt for the rules of probation and of the court.” In fact, his rap sheet runs 14 pages.
Which apparently impresses the ladies.
