ARRESTED DEADBEATS

ARRESTED: Steven Jordan

Entertainer Steven Jordan, also known as "Stevie J," was arrested on June 9 on charges of willfully failing to pay child support. In July 1999, Jordan was ordered by the New York County Family Court to pay $6,608 per month in child support for his two children. In 2011, the order was increased to $8,557. Despite being gainfully employed in the entertainment business, including employment as a cast member on a reality television show and earning approximately $27,000 per month, Jordan has paid only a fraction of his child support obligations. Consequently, Jordan owes more than $1.1 million in court-ordered child support. Jordan was arrested in New York and is awaiting trial.
