Man charged with not paying $50K in child support

The Associated Press

BANGOR — A Massachusetts man is facing charges of failing to pay $50,000 in child support for a now teenage son living in Maine.

Dennis Allain of Worcester, Mass., made his first appearance in U.S. District Court in Bangor on Tuesday on a charge of failure to pay child support obligations.

The Bangor Daily News reports that the 45-year-old Allain was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.

Federal authorities say Allain was ordered to pay child support to the mother of his son, who is now 16, following a 1997 paternity hearing in Bangor District Court. The boy and his mother, who never married Allain, live in Old Town.

According to the complaint, Allain has paid just $461. His last payment of $19 was made in March 1998.
