Judge Lisa Millard sentenced Clifford Hall 6 months in in jail for a crime he did not commit.
It seems that his child support payments were modified without his knowledge, which violates the due process clause of the U.S. constitution. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that the government can not take a persons property or liberty without a chance to present their own evidence in a court of law.
Judge Lisa Millard should be removed from office and prohibited from every holding a public office, or any office that has authority over the people. Judge Lisa Millard along with the Harris county child support office is a perfect example of how dads are being driven into child support induced poverty.
Now that Clifford Hall is in jail how is he supposed to pay his child support? Rather that being current on his child support, he is going to leave jail 6 months in the rear and with no job. How is that justice?
Child support is not about taking care of the child. The current system is designed to do one thing, that is to punish the non-custodial parent, which is usually the father. Judge Lisa Millard and her decision to throw Clifford Hall in jail for 6 month is a perfect example of a system that is out of control.
The child support system in Texas needs to be reformed. The first step to reigning in an out of control system is to remove judges like Lisa Millard from office. Once removed from office make her an example by prohibiting her from practicing law in Texas, and prohibit her from holding any public office. Her sentence of Clifford Hall is nothing more than abuse of power.
How is being current on your child support a crime? It is not.
Chances are the only reason why Clifford Hall is in jail is because he is black. I hate to say that, but it is my honest opinion. It is strange how a white woman throws a black man in jail for paying his child support.
