According to court records from 1987, Carnell Alexander's girlfriend put his name on a form as the father of her child when she applied for state assistance.The rest here.
In the late 1980s, a process server told the court that he delivered the notice to Alexander.
That did not happen, however, as Alexander was incarcerated at the time for an unrelated crime.
It was during a traffic stop in 1991 that Alexander found out for the first time that he owed $60,000 in back child support.

Man Owes $30,000 Child Support Court Costs Though He Isn't The Father
A woman lies about a man being the father of her child, twenty years later he's ordered to pay $60,000 in back child support. And even though he now does not owe $30,000 worth of child support, he owes the state of Michigan $30,000.000, and if he doesn't pay up, he could go to jail. Talk about travesty of justice.
