Former NBA star owes $1 million in child support

Cases involving failure to pay child support in Georgia and elsewhere receive public attention. However, when the person failing to a pay support obligation is a former member of the National Basketball Association, people take notice - especially if the individual owes nearly $1 million in child support.

Such is the case involving former NBA star Tyrone Nesby who was recently sentenced in federal court for failure to pay child support. Nesby, who once played for the both the Los Angeles Clippers and the Washington Wizards of the NBA, received five years probation and was ordered to pay nearly $1 million dollars in restitution for unpaid child support.

According to the U.S. District Attorney handling the case, Nesby pled guilty and agreed to fully pay the supervised restitution. The court also recommended that Nesby address underprivileged school children about the importance of family and about what he has learned as the result of his experience.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said that failure to pay child support puts a strain on both the custodial parent and the children themselves. It also consumes limited resources allocated to the Department of Health and Human Services to assist these families.

The investigation in the Nesby case was managed by Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and prosecuted by the office of the Assistant United States Attorney.
