The NCP was arrested in a different state and extradited a couple of weeks later to OH who issued the warrant approximately 8 years ago. He was represented by legal counsel. In 2003, NCP had 8 sanctions placed upon him that included jail time, probation, pay $XX toward child support. A warrant was issued in 2009 due to a probation violation. However, NCP lived in hiding so he was not captured until 2018. NCP original plea was NOT GUILTY but later changed to GUILTY. The judge released him on GPS ankle monitoring until further information could be reviewed. A week later he went before the judge who terminated his community control and judgment against the Defendant (NCP), in favor of victim (CP and/or dependents) in the amount of over $100k. The dependents are now over the age of 18. What kind of negotiation would allow the judge to allow NCP to walk free when judgment was against him?
Because the case is so old and the NCP has assets and can work to pay off the child support arrears. Because the warrant sent him into hiding, which had the opposite effect of getting regular and consistent support payments. There could be other reasons. These are all just very general and speculative answers to the questions you have asked. Consult with the CSEA, the prosecutor's office, and/or the victim advocate to discuss your case. Best of luck to you.
