Poker Pro/Porn Guy Scott Obst Guilty of Being a Crappy Dad

Scott_obstLas Vegas poker pro Scott Obst, who was arrested this year for failing to pay more than $150,000 in child support despite banking  $400k a year from playing cards and some porn distribution biz he owns, has pleaded guilty to a felony count of non-support and two counts of misdemeanor failure to pay child support. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says:

"Under the three-year agreement that has Obst paying about half of the back child support, Obst must pay $1,000 per month until his son turns 18 in May 2009, pay $10,000 by the time he is sentenced Dec. 19 for the two misdemeanors, pay $33,000 within three years, and pay $2,667 to Waukesha County Child Support Enforcement Office for extradition costs. During the time of the agreement, Obst must notify Waukesha authorities of any change of employment or address.

Also, $5,000 of the $25,000 bail Obst posted must go to the District Attorney’s office, which will give $3,000 to the mother and $2,000 to the county’s child support office. The remainder of the bail will go toward child support arrears once Obst is sentenced in December."

The case apparently goes all the way back to 1991 when Obst was
declared the father in a paternity suit and was ordered to pay child
support. So he isn’t like the kid’s dad dad. He’s just the one who knocked up mommy.
