Former Indiana Man To Pay $2M In Child Support

Last updated on Sunday, May 20, 2018

(FORT WAYNE) - A former Indiana man who abandoned his family nearly 25 years ago and fled to Florida has been ordered to pay his ex-wife nearly $2 million in back child support.

Police arrested Richard J. Hoagland in 2016 in Florida on a fraudulent personal identification charge. He'd started a new family using a dead man's name after leaving his family in 1993.

The Journal Gazette reports that a magistrate in central Indiana's Hamilton County on Wednesday awarded Hoagland's ex-wife, Linda K. Iseler, with child support for their two children dating back to the early 1990s.

The court is still deciding on whether Hoagland should pay Iseler for attorney's fees. A hearing in the case is scheduled for next month.

Hoagland's attorney, Paula J. Schaefer, declined to comment Friday on the ruling.
