Really? To whom? And if that is true, the guy is an idiot for not fighting that through every available appeal.
I actually know of a similar type of incident and the guy fought it and lost in Superior Court, then won it on appeal. His defense was “involuntary sperm donor.” Again, this area is never black & white or cut & dry. There are a ton of variables and in my experience people like to embellish these stories to make it seem like they were wronged by the system.
