PATERSON, N.J. >> The New Jersey man who just won a $338 million Powerball jackpot has resolved a child support warrant.
Pedro Quezada appeared Monday afternoon in state Superior Court in Paterson.
Authorities had said the 44-year-old Passaic resident owed about $29,000 in back support. During the court hearing, officials said Quezada had paid about $30,000 to settle the debt.
Quezada claimed a lump-sum payment last week worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes.
The unpaid child support payments dates to 2009. But it's not clear which of Quezada's five children are covered by the payments.
