Deadbeat dad from Hawaii pleads guilty after movie ruse

By Associated Press


ALLENTOWN, Pa. >> A man has been ordered to pay more than $32,000 in back child support after being lured back to Pennsylvania with the promise of a bogus role in a Jennifer Aniston movie.

Joshua Garlathy pleaded guilty Tuesday to willful failure to pay child support more than a month after he was arrested after his flight from Hawaii landed in Philadelphia.

Garlathy was arrested under a new law making it a crime to move out of state to avoid paying child support. He was lured back to Pennsylvania by a bounty hunter promising him a role in a fake movie.

Garlathy was also sentenced to 90 days of probation. He says he hopes he can rebuild his relationship with his daughter.
