Accused deadbeat dad challenges celibacy requirements
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A man accused of being a deadbeat dad after fathering a dozen children by 11 women is asking a judge to throw out a clause in his plea agreement that would prohibit him from having sex.
Luther Crawford, 49, said he thought the abstinence clause was just a joke. His lawyer claims it violates Crawford's constitutional rights and can't be enforced.
But a prosecutor said Crawford signed the agreement next to the no-sex clause.
Jefferson Circuit Judge Tom McDonald said he will decide whether to keep the provision when Crawford is sentenced on May 13.
Crawford, of Louisville, owes $33,000 in support for two of his children and is in jail awaiting another child-support case in which he owes $21,000.
