    GRAND RAPIDS -- The state attorney general's office has prosecuted thousands of parents for failing to pay child support, but none of those has been as "outrageous" as the claims -- and children -- piling up for African-American Howard Veal. He makes Travis Henry and Antonio Cromartie look like they need Viagra or Cialis.


    The Muskegon man has fathered 23 children with 14 women (at least), and is more than $533,000 in arrears in his child-support payments, according to the attorney general's office, which has been pushing a case against Veal -- tied to two of those children -- in Kent County Circuit Court.

    On Thursday, Judge Dennis Leiber sentenced Veal, 44, to two to four years in prison for failure to pay child support, a felony. With this sentence, the judge far exceeded the state guidelines, which called for Veal to get no more than six months in the county jail.

    "You are the poster child for irresponsibility," Leiber told Veal, who appeared surprised by the sentence. "You're an insult to every responsible father who sacrifices to provide for their children."


    "I was stunned and amazed," said Leiber of the scope of Veal's fatherhood, and his failure to pay anything but a scant amount to most of the mothers. "Animals procreate, human beings are supposed to nurture their children."

    The case Veal was sentenced on stemmed from his guilty plea in July to owing more than $60,000 in child support to Grand Rapids resident Sherri Black, to whom he made one $87.75 payment over the course of seven years, according to the attorney general's office.

    "The Attorney General's Child Support Division has prosecuted thousands of felony nonsupport cases since its inception, but none as outrageous as this," said Assistant Attorney General Mitchell Wood in a memo asking Leiber to exceed the guidelines for Veal's sentence.

    Mitchell said their investigation revealed that between 1989 and 1999, Veal impregnated at least one woman every year. "Incredibly, in three of those years, the defendant impregnated three women per year ...," the memo said.

    Mitchell said Veal was unable to remember the names of several of his children and could not say specifically how many he fathered.

    Man,

    And I thought the guy here in Dallas that had like 14 kids by 7-8 women was bad (and raping the girls when they became teenagers).

    Look on the bright side, our tax money is going to be spent here in the U.S. instead of shipping to Iraq on pallets and then disappear.
