00:00:09>>> And now enter the courtroom of judge mathis.
00:00:12Plaintiff donnie young dated the DEFENDANT IN THE LATE '80s, AND When she got pregnant she told donnie he was the father.
00:00:20However, donnie has his doubts, especially since the defendant's daughter is named after her ex-boyfriend.
00:00:27Donnie petitioned the court for a paternity test, and he's suing for an overpayment of child support.
00:00:36Defendant desiree fisher cannot believe that donnie waited 24 years to ask for a paternity test for their daughter.
00:00:46Desiree is countersuing for unpaid child support and she petitioned for her ex-boyfriend who is with her in court to take a dna test to prove he did not father her daughter.
00:00:57>> Let me hear from you.
00:00:58>> Your honor, I met desiree back in late '87-'88.
00:01:03We had a relationship that lasted close to a year.
00:01:07She lived with me for a period of time.
00:01:11She became pregnant.
00:01:14We fell out and went our separate ways.
00:01:17I ended up going to jail for selling drugs.
00:01:22Since I'veeen out I've changed my life around.
00:01:27I attend church regularly.
00:01:29>> He's a deacon.
00:01:30>> I'm a practicing deacon and i s sing in the choir.
00:01:35>> Good.
00:01:36>> What do you do for a living?
00:01:40>> I'm a construction worker.
00:01:42>> Good.
00:01:42Construction workers make plenty of money.
00:01:44And depending on how far you go, you can become wealthy.
00:01:48Become a wealthy developer.
00:01:49I say all this because guys in prison or guys with a record they think no one is ever going to hire them and their life is over.
00:01:58There's no way to get a lot of money other than selling drugs.
00:02:02You start off painting houses.
00:02:04You start off fixing the porch.
00:02:05You get a skill trader's license and start your own company.
00:02:08Am I right?
00:02:09>> Definitely.
00:02:10>> And then ten years later you can be rich.
00:02:12I know a lot of people that started off as contractors and ten years later they're rich.
00:02:17So that's a good lesson that others might learn from you.
00:02:20Glad you told me about that.
00:02:22So what happened?
00:02:22Let's get back to what we're here for.
00:02:25And you all dated in '88.
00:02:28You went to prison.
00:02:30How much time did you get?
00:02:31>> I did about 16, 17 years.
00:02:34>> You had some kilos?
00:02:37>> I was in a dug conspiracy.
00:02:41Yeah, it was kilos.
00:02:42>> It had to be.
00:02:44Yeah, that's a lot.
00:02:47Well, he's overcometh.
00:02:48That's the good news.
00:02:49Go ahead.
00:02:50>> Our relationship broke up and we went our separate ways.
00:02:54While I was incarcerated i talked to desiree on and off on the telephone.
00:02:59And she warned me that her ex-boyfriend, which is deon here, was coming to visit her.
00:03:06And when desiree ended up having deonica, she named deonica after deon.
00:03:16>> After her ex?
00:03:17>> Yes, she did.
00:03:17>> You named his child after your ex.
00:03:19>> He wasn't there.
00:03:21>> Before you had a lot of money, right?
00:03:23>> Yes, sir.
00:03:24>> And she benefitted from that money, right?
00:03:26>> Yes, she did.
00:03:27>> And so her response when i said -- >> I left her a mercedes benz.
00:03:32>> And her response to why she named your baby after her ex is, he was in prison.
00:03:39He wasn't there.
00:03:43I spent all his money and got him locked up.
00:03:46Now I can spend the money on my ex.
00:03:48>> I had the baby -- >> let him finish.
00:03:53>> Not only that, your honor, i believe she enticed my daughter to name her first child after deon.
00:03:59His name is deon, too.
00:04:03But, your honor, anyway.
00:04:06-- >> let me allow her to speak.
00:04:10>> Okay.
00:04:12>> Go ahead, ma'am.
00:04:13>> I am shocked at all of this.
00:04:14>> That's all you want to say?
00:04:17>> No.
00:04:19Yoobl now after 24 years that she'll be 24th december 5th, because he was not there when i was pregnant and he was not there when I had her.
00:04:27Him saying he left me a mercedes, no.
00:04:30The police picked the mercedes up.
00:04:34I had to pay the money to get it back because he wanted the car.
00:04:37And mind you she was born six months before he went to jail.
00:04:40She wasn't born after he was locked up.
00:04:43It was before he went to jail.
00:04:46>> Did they lock you up, too?
00:04:48>> No.
00:04:49He was with another girl when he got locked up.
00:04:55>> But they knew you lived with him.
00:04:56They locked a woman up who is benefitting.
00:04:58They lock a woman up who is driving a mercedes.
00:05:01They lock up a woman living the high life.
00:05:05>> He had a woman he lived with.
00:05:07He lived with me when I was pregnant.
00:05:10During my pregnancy he owned the house.
00:05:12>> That's not what I'm asking you.
00:05:14When he lived with you, was he selling drugs?
00:05:17>> To my understanding, yes.
00:05:19>> And he lived with you?
00:05:21And he paid the rent.
00:05:22>> He owned the house.
00:05:23>> And so you lived under the roof of a drug dealer.
00:05:29Next time don't live with a drug dealer because you'll go to prison with him.
00:05:34Let's just get past that.
00:05:35What else you want me to know?
00:05:37>> I want you to know he is the father and why is he asking for a dna after 24 years after she is here?
00:05:44I even asked him at the time when I had the baby or when i got pregnant if you wanted a dna let's get it out now.
00:05:53I'll pay my half.
00:05:54You pay your half.
00:05:55He didn't want to pay.
00:05:57>> You also petitioned the court for a dna test for your witness.
00:06:01>> Yes.

00:06:20Is there anything else you can get addicted to?

00:06:29>> Yes.
00:06:29>> Judge Mathis: Meaning that for 18 years you were giving the check.
