RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine County judge promises to send a deadbeat father of nine to jail if he fathers another child.

44-year-old Corey Curtis of Racine owes around $90,000 in past due child support and interest, to help 6 women support 9 children he had with them.

At his sentencing Monday, Circuit Judge Tim Boyle said he wished he had the legal authority to sterilize Curtis.

That’s when Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Sommers pointed out that a previous State Supreme Court ruling allows a defendant not to have another child unless it’s proven that he or she can support that youngster.

Boyle then said he would make non-procreation order part of Curtis’s probation.

The Supreme Court upheld a similar probation order in 2001 in a case from Manitowoc County. The justices said David Oakley’s right to procreate was not eliminated, because he could still physically reproduce – as long as he supported his children.
