A jury has awarded former NFL star Deion Sanders sole conservatorship of his two sons, while he will share joint conservatorship of his daughter with his wife. The jury reportedly returned with their decision roughly three hours after hearing Deion Sanders testify as the case's final witness. One of the 12 jurors refused to sign off on the verdict, but the law only requires signatures from 10. The decision concludes a custody battle that began when Deion and Pilar Sanders announced that they were separating in late 2011. They remain married but are estranged and have accused each other of assault and abuse.
A man originally from Michigan says he paid 25 years' worth of child support before realizing that the payments were for a child who died in 1988. The man said he did not notice that the payments being withdrawn from his bank account were for the child, who died of acute meningitis at the age of three, assuming they were for an older boy he fathered with the deceased child's mother. However, that child is now 34-year-old, making the man suspicious and leading him to investigate the child support payments he had made regularly for well over two decades.
