"I discovered for some reason his employer was withholding a large amount some weeks a small amount some weeks a zero amount some weeks," says Hall's attorney Tyesha Elam.

"I didn't want to go to jail basically," Hall says.

So Hall quickly paid almost 3 grand in back child support.

When Hall and his ex were in Judge Lisa Millard's court last November he owed nothing.

"Opposing counsel testified twice that he's all paid up," says Elam.

But the attorney representing the child's mother wanted Hall to pay her three grand in attorney fees and Judge Millard agreed.

Court documents also reveal Hall wasn't following the court's scheduled times to pick his son up for visitation.

Another modification Hall says he knew nothing about.

"The Judge ended up sentencing him to 6 months in jail." Elam says.

"When she said I remand you to the Harris County Jail for 180 days my mouth just dropped," says Hall.

"This entire situation is shocking to me," says community activist Quanell X. "I've never seen one like this."

Quanell X wants the state's judicial board to investigate.

"The court failed the child," he says. "The court failed Mr. Hall the system broke down."

"I'm like he couldn't have gotten a worse result," Elam says. "He could have gone in there with a monkey and gotten a better result. What did I do that my client has over paid over visited and is now paying 3 thousand dollars in attorney fees and is going to jail for 6 months."
