Former London attorney sentenced on child support

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A former London attorney will have to pay back child support after his sentencing hearing in Laurel Circuit Court last week.

Daniel Warren James, 49, of West High Street in Lexington, received a five-year prison sentence at his sentencing hearing on Jan. 18 in Laurel Circuit Court, but was given unsupervised probation for 10 years. He will receive credit for the time he has served in the Laurel County Detention Center.

James was also ordered to pay $233,000 in back child support on his two children. The payments were set at $800 per month and are to begin on February 1.

James served 18 days in jail in 2011 for failure to pay child support. He was indicted for flagrant non-support in 2012 and pulled a six-month sentence in Laurel County Detention Center from early March until late August for refusing to make the required child support payments.
