According to Atlanta television station WSB, former NFL star Terrell Owens did not show up to a court appearance the other day and may be facing jail time.
Owen’s attorney, David Hartin, told the judge it was his fault Owens was not there. Hartin said he didn’t communicate well with his client.
The hearing involved T.O. being $20,000 behind on payments to the mother of his seven-year-old daughter.
Melanie Smith, the mother of Owen’s 7-year-old daughter, said he has not made child support payments in months. A previous agreement required Owens to pay Smith $5,000 per month.
The judge, John Goger, agreed to reschedule the hearing for next week, and T.O. could go to jail if he doesn’t appear.
