United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Post Falls, Idaho, man convicted of three counts of Failure to Pay Legal Child Support was sentenced on January 23, 2014, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

David E. Cox, age 47, was sentenced to 5 years of unsupervised probation on each count to run concurrently, ordered to pay a $300 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and child support restitution in the amount of $62,277.67. He was found guilty by a federal jury on January 16, 2014.

Cox was indicted for failing to pay over $61,000 in child support on July 9, 2013.  The obligations went unpaid for more than two years and were in amounts greater than $10,000.  At that time, Cox was residing in Idaho while his minor children resided in South Dakota.  From that date and continuing to the present, Cox willfully and unlawfully failed to pay these past due child support obligations.

This case was investigated by the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman prosecuted the case.
