ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio appeals court has upheld a judge’s order that a deadbeat father can’t have more kids until he pays his back child support.
The decision this week by the 9th District Court of Appeals didn’t provide an opinion about whether the judge’s order was appropriate. Instead the appeals court said it didn’t have enough information to decide the merits of the case without a copy of the pre-sentence report detailing Asim Taylor’s background.

Man sues Steelers' Adams over carjacking claim

PITTSBURGH (AP) — One of three men acquitted last month of trying to carjack the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Adams sued the lineman Tuesday, saying Adams lied when he claimed the man had a gun and threatened Adams.

Adams and Allegheny County prosecutors claimed Dquay Means, 26, threatened Adams with a gun when he exited a restaurant about 3 a.m. June 1, and attempted to steal his car. Another of the defendants allegedly stabbed Adams instead, and the men ran away. Adams was hospitalized for four days.

The defendants argued at their trial last month that the encounter wasn't a carjacking but a fight that began when a drunken Adams knocked food out of the hands of one the men. Means and Jerrell Whitlock, 27, the man who accused of stabbing Adams, were acquitted of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, conspiracy and attempted robbery. Means was convicted only of escape, which involved his flight from police once he knew he was wanted.

Michael Paranay, 26, the man who claimed Adams knocked his food from him, was also acquitted of all charges against him. Paranay's attorney argued at trial that Adams was the aggressor and "obliterated drunk, aggressive and out of control."

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man convicted of stealing and selling human skulls and skeletons from a medical college was sentenced Tuesday to 15 months in prison and ordered to pay $85,000 in restitution.

Weston Moquin, 29, who was an anatomical assistant in the anatomy lab at Ohio University in Athens, pleaded guilty to stealing human remains, autopsy saws and other items from the school, reaping profits from online sales.

Federal Judge James Graham handed down Moquin's sentence at a hearing in Columbus.

Defense attorney Keith Yeazel that Moquin get probation, saying he's a first-time, nonviolent offender who stole to support a painkiller addiction he developed after a back injury.

"Mr. Moquin is an individual who understands his substance abuse had made a complete mess of his and his family's life," Yeazel wrote in a court record seeking probation for his client.
