Dad fathers 30 children, can't afford child support

Posted: Updated:
KNOXVILLE, TN (CBS5) -

Desmond Hatchett has dozens of kids and now he's told a judge he can't pay all the child support.

Hatchett has fathered 30 children with 11 different women.

He claims the women knew he had other children but still wanted a relationship.

Hatchett only earns minimum wage and the state can only take half of his income for child support. That means each mother receives about $1.50 per month.

The state now has to step in and help with the rest.
