Woodland man convicted of dodging child support payments

By April 7, 2011

A Woodland man was sentenced this week to 84 days in jail and two years of probation for failure to pay child support, Yolo County Child Support Services Director Mark Jones announced Thursday.

Jose Luna Jr., 43, received the sentence Tuesday from Yolo Superior Court Commissioner Dennis A. Umanzio, Jones said in a news release. Luna was remanded to serve an immediate 30 days, while 54 days of the jail sentence is suspended.

Jones said the sentence was the result of a contempt trial during which Luna was found guilty of 28 counts of contempt and failing to provide work search reports to the county.

Luna was acquitted of two separate counts of failing to pay support for his child, who also lives in Woodland. If he violates probation, Luna could be ordered to pay the remaining jail time, Jones said.

The Yolo County Department of Child Support Services serves more than 12,000 children, most of whom live in Yolo County, by providing free services to custodial and non-custodial parents to assist in establishing paternity; obtaining or modifying child support or medical support orders; locating absent parents and collecting child support payments.
