Deadbeat Dad, or Court System Casualty?
A Houston man is fighting a court order for tens of thousands of dollars in child support for a child DNA proves isn’t his.
The system still may consider him a ‘deadbeat dad’ despite the scientific proof. But Texas law may not care about the science.
Gabriel Cornejo’s only choice may be to pay the $65,000 in child support for a child that isn’t his and he’s only met one time last year.
“I never thought in my whole life I would have to defend myself or something that I am innocent of,” Cornejo said.
