United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Marshall, Minnesota man charged with Failure to Pay Legal Child Support was sentenced on May 3, 2013 by U.S. Magistrate Court Judge John E. Simko.
Larry T. Davis, age 38, was sentenced to 2 years of probation, a $10 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and child support restitution in the amount of $12,974.00.
Davis was indicted for failing to pay over $11,774.00 by a federal grand jury on December 4, 2012. On or about January 1, 2010, a past due child support obligation was imposed on Davis by the Third Judicial Circuit Court, Brookings County, South Dakota for the benefit of his minor child. The obligation went unpaid for more than one year and was in an amount greater than $5,000. At that time, the defendant was residing in Minnesota while his minor child resided in South Dakota. From that date and continuing to the present, Davis has willfully and unlawfully failed to pay this past due child support obligation. He pled guilty to the charge on April 12, 2013.
This case was investigated by the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General. Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas J. Wright prosecuted the case.
