PARAGOULD, AR  (KAIT) – A Greene County man will spend seven years in prison for not paying child support on his two children. Phillip Ray Hancock, 34, of Paragould had his suspended sentence revoked by a judge.

Second Judicial District Prosecutor Scott Ellington said Hancock also failed to appear in court as well.

Circuit Judge Randy Philhours stacked the sentences and ordered Hancock to serve in the Arkansas Department of Correction.

A news release stated, "Hopefully, Mr. Hancock will serve as an example to others that my office is serious about pursuing deadbeat parents that chronically fail to pay child support as ordered," Ellington said. "I appreciate the effort of my Greene County deputies, Kimberly Dale and Adam Butler, in holding Mr. Hancock accountable."

Prosecutors also said Hancock had plead guilty to failure to pay child support in 2009, when he plead guilty and was sentenced to 60 months in ADC, followed by 60 months suspended imposition of sentence.
