Clerical error occurred at Hall's workplace
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; In the eyes of the law, Clifford Hall must go to jail because he didn't fulfill his obligations as a father.
For several months he failed to pay the full amounts owed in child support for his 12-year-old son. But Hall said he's being punished just because of a clerical error at his workplace.
After exhausting his appeals options, the 43-year-old Houstonian surrendered himself to authorities at the Harris County Civil Courthouse Tuesday to serve a six-month sentence for failure to pay child support.
