NEW YORK - A New York man who fled to Thailand to escape charges that earned him the title "most wanted deadbeat parent" pleaded guilty Thursday to owing more than $1.2 million to three children from two failed marriages.
Robert Sand, 50, pleaded guilty in US District Court in Central Islip on Long Island to two counts of failing to pay child support. Assistant US Attorney Alan Bode said in court that the child support orders, which were issued on Long Island, have been in arrears since at least 2002.
The figure cited by Bode includes interest and penalties. The prosecutor declined to comment to reporters after the court proceeding.
