A Muskegon man was arraigned in 79th District Court on a felony count of failing to pay child support on Friday, May 15, in a case being led by the Michigan Attorney General’s office.

Daniel Lee Weaver, 33, 297 W. Clay Ave. Apt. 209, Muskegon, was arraigned on the charge on Friday. Don Christy, the child support investigator supervisor for the attorney general’s office, was listed as the arresting agency in the case’s pretrial release order.

The complaint filed by Assistant Attorney General Sarah K. Brenner sought a count of failing to pay child support. According to the complaint, Weaver is allegedly behind on child support as of Aug. 14, 2019, in the amount of $14,362.94.

According to Ryan Jarvi, the press secretary for the attorney general’s office, Weaver was arrested on May 15 by the Michigan State Police.

Jarvi pointed the Daily News to a release from the attorney general’s office that the Child Support Unit has worked to prosecute those individuals it alleges are behind on child support in the amount of at least $5,000.

According to a different release in January, the unit works on cases when noncustodial parents live outside the state or when cases are referred to it from the Friend of the Court.

Bond was set at $2,500, personal recognizance, in the Weaver case. A probable cause hearing was scheduled for May 27.
