Powerball winner resolves $30k child support debt

Posted: Updated:

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - The New Jersey man who just won a $338 million Powerball jackpot has resolved a child support debt.
    
Pedro Quezada appeared Monday afternoon in state Superior Court in Paterson.
    
Authorities had said the 44-year-old Passaic resident owed about $29,000 in back support for three of his five children.
    
During the court hearing, officials said Quezada had paid $30,000 to settle the debt. He also told the judge that the three children would now be living with him.
    
Quezada claimed a lump-sum payment last week worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes.
    
The unpaid child support payments date to 2009.
