Asim Taylor, 35, of Elyria was ordered not to procreate during the 5-year probation he was given by Lorain County Judge James Walther after pleading guilty to nearly $79,000 in unpaid child support going back to 2009.
The Elyria Morning Journal said Walther wrote his order is in the "interests of doing justice, rehabilitating the offender."
Walther's order can be lifted if Taylor proves he has the wherewithal to support another child in addition to his current brood of four. But Taylor's lawyer said the sentence was overboard because it dings him for being poor and, in effect, bans him from having sex for five years.
