A father has an obligation to financially provide for his child. Jace’s dad failed to do this and paid the price. Exclusive!

Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evansson’s father Charles Andrew Lewis spent 17 days behind bars for not paying child support for his son Jace Evans. On Dec. 29, Charles was picked up by the Randolph County, N.C.’s Sheriff’s Department and placed into custody after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Jenelle’s caught smoking while pumping gas

Charles has had outstanding warrants for his arrest in Brunswick County, N.C. since Feb. 22, 2010 when he failed to pay $824 to Jenelle for the care of their 1-year-old. On Sept. 29, another order was filed overriding the initial warrant. This time, Charles owed $2,079.67 as of Sept. 27 in overdue child support to Barbara Evans, because Charles and Jenelle had signed over temporary custody of Jace to her on June 10.

HollyBaby.com got our hands on the legal documents and learned that the Sept. 29 order reads: “The defendant has not complied with prior Orders of the Court and is in willful Civil Contempt of this Court [and] that the defendant has no just cause for refusing to pay support or to appear in court as previously ordered. The defendant shall be incarcerated indefinitely or until total arrears are paid in full.”

With the warrant for his arrest still in full force, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Department arrested and placed Charles in jail on Dec. 29. On Jan. 4, Charles was moved to the Brunswick County Jail where he remained until Jan. 14, when he paid $1,250.00 to Barbara and Jenelle in order to be released from jail.

Jenelle isn’t even sure who fathered her baby

By Jan. 20, it was noted that Charles didn’t owe Barbara anything in back support. But he still does have to pay for future care of the boy. Since Feb. 1, Charles has been required to make monthly child support payments in the amount of $356 per month.

He tells HollyBaby.com that he has set up “an account for [Jace's] college and an account just for his child support to be taken out every month so I won’t worry about missing a payment [again].” Good idea! It looks like he learned his lesson behind bars.

Ok first of all I am wondering why this guy is paying child support if its not even a fact (DNA test done) that he is the father?? Also I agree the mother should be paying child support as well. And I have never heard of anyone going to jail for that amount of money. Its crazy just how much women can get away with. The mother is totally irresponsible and also you cannot force anyone to pay all their income for one child. Really stupid comment. Must not have kids as you know not all your money is going to them. So sick of hearing people (mostly moms) complain about child support. Its an excuse to get back at alot of fathers out there. Im not saying this guy is a good guy but I mean they split up before her son was even born and she obviously wasnt ready to be a parent. I dont get why they dont just terminate the rights? If yuor not gonna raise yuor child then give them up for adoption. I think its ridiculous to even order support when they want to give their child up. Poor kids gotta crazy life ahead of him!

I don’t think women get away with that much…I am a single mother of 2 kids with the same father and he has not paid child support since we split. Because we split he thinks that he is free to go and has no obligation to his children…So it’s not just the women that get away with everything…Men make the babies too and rarely pay child support!!!

Charles should be made to give up his entire paycheck to JACE or BARBARA for the entire 18 years that Jace will need it. After all, neither him nor Jenelle really want to be parents. That’s so obvious.They should both be sterilized. Charles is ugly, as well.

That makes no sense and is just down right ridiculous. Seriosuly, if he has to “give up his entire paycheck for the entire 18 years” then why would he ever work? You cannot deprive a person of the money they make to the extent that they cannot infact live off of it. Unless you as an assumed tax payer wanna pay for him to live

my problem with this is how it mentions the fact that both jenelle and charles signed over custody to jenelles mother barbara… but only charles is being held accountable for child support. neither parent has custody of the child so isnt it only right that they both have an obligation to pay support.

i am a single father in missouri that is owed a year of back child support from my ex. my state will not prosecute for basically anything less than 10,000 dollars.

Well joboo, I am a re-married mother in Missouri and as soon as my sons father got behind 12 months they put out a NATIONWIDE FELONY warrant for his arrest. Even though he has the warrant and they know where he is, Jackson county police will not go get him. It is all based upon what county you live in.

I agree that both parents need to pay support and in Misouri they make both parents pay child support if the neither of the parents have custody.
