    Wow! Lawyer does 10 years & STILL counting for civil contempt...

    MEDIA, Pa. (AP) A lawyer imprisoned more than a decade for allegedly hiding $2.5 million during his divorce was back in court Tuesday, but H. Beatty Chadwick failed again to persuade judges to set him free. Attorneys say Chadwick, 68, may be serving the longest stretch in U.S. history for civil contempt. The judge who sent him to jail in 1995 found that he had hidden his wealth in overseas banks rather than allow his ex-wife to get it.

    I like this judge!
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
