Child support doubled in stolen sperm case

CHICAGO, March 14 (UPI) -- A judge has doubled the $800 monthly child support payments of a Chicago doctor who claims the mother stole his sperm and impregnated herself.

DNA testing proved Richard Phillips is the father of a 5-year-old girl he has never met.

Phillips is suing Sharon Irons, an Olympia Fields physician, in a civil lawsuit that claims the pair never had sexual intercourse. Phillips says Irons betrayed a trust when she "harvested" his sperm after oral sex and became pregnant, the Daily Southtown newspaper said.

The pair had a brief relationship in 1999. Irons said she and Phillips had sex and that she got pregnant "the old-fashioned way."

Judge Luciano Panci temporarily doubled Phillips' child support to $1,600 a month and ordered the couple to negotiate details of the paternity case. Philips said he plans to seek joint custody of the daughter and begin visitation.
