TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court has ordered a lower court to reconsider whether a former Kansas State offensive lineman owes interest on previously unpaid child support.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the high court on Friday overturned a state appeals court decision on previously unpaid child support payments by former Kansas State star offensive lineman Kendyl Jacox.
The state of Kansas alleged Jacox owed more than $173,600 in back payments to the mother of his child born in 1998 when he was at Kansas State. The woman then sought interest on the payments, but the lower courts ruled against her.
The state Supreme Court ruled the lower courts erred and ordered the case sent back to Riley County.
