SHELL LAKE, Wis., Jan. 17 (UPI) -- A Wisconsin man has been ordered not to father any more children until he catches up on the child support he owes for his current brood, officials say.

Judge Eugene Harrington issued the order against John J. Butler of Hayward as a condition of probation for failure to pay child support, the Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune reported Thursday.

The judge also ordered Butler, 28, to tell any women within three minutes of meeting them that he is a convicted felon and has unpaid child support.

Butler pleaded no contest in October to felony failure to pay child support for more than 120 days in 2011.

He also is required to maintain full-time employment, make child-support payments, seek counseling and stay sober.
