Jimmy King faces felony charge for owing child support

One rather well-known basketball player was recently arrested for unpaid child support. Now, Jimmy King, who was part of the "Fab Five" team in the mid-90s, is facing a failure to pay child support charge, which is a felony and carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison.

The state's attorney general claims that authorities have been attempting to contact King about the child support that he owes for weeks, but were unsuccessful until this past Wednesday.

Supposedly, the basketball player, who now operates a solar energy design and installation company, owes $17,209 for one child.

According to sources, authorities learned of the 38-year-old's whereabouts due to fliers that announced he would be at a basketball camp that was being held at a church.

After being arrested that night at the church, he was brought to the county jail where he was being held on a $3,500 bond.

When looking at this case, even though a Missouri mother or father facing unpaid child support charges would most likely not make top headlines, his arrest does highlight just how serious the repercussions can be for any parent who fails to make their payments.

And, while authorities found King at a basketball camp at a church due to a flier, here the Missouri Division of Child Support Enforcement also monitors and works to enforce court-ordered child support payments.

Keeping this in mind, it is important that parents who are not receiving support, as well as those who are having trouble making their payments, look into all legal routes in order to make sure that their child is getting the reasonable amount of support that is needed.
