What A Beating

So I have to go to Jacksboro this morning for a hearing on a court appointment client. My guy hasn't paid child support for quite some time, the AG's office is after him, and the judge had given him 60 days to make a good faith effort on his past due balance. She had threatened him with jail time if he didn't. So what happens? He hasn't paid a single penny and gets thrown in jail in jail for contempt for 90 days. His defense was that he couldn't find any work any where. So when I stop at the local convenience store to get a coke on the way home, I was met with a handwritten sign of "Now Hiring. Apply Inside" taped to the front door. (I then heard dramatic music as the camera panned back and the credits began to roll.)
