Greenville church music minister has been sentenced
Minister arrested for back child support
GREENVILLE, S.C. - A Greenville church music minister has been sentenced to six months in prison for failing to pay more than $394,000 in back child support for his 13 children.
WYFF-TV in Greenville says a judge ordered Lyman Rea on Thursday to pay $37,000 before he's released. He was arrested Wednesday while preparing for an evening service at Second Baptist Church in Greenville.
It's unclear if Rea had an attorney. Calls to his home and the church were not immediately returned Thursday. A spokesman for the sheriff's department said he wasn't sure if the man had a lawyer.
