Darius Lang, estranged husband of Martoiya Lang, missed a court appearance Tuesday concerning child support for his four children because he was in jail in Georgia on a DUI charge stemming from a 2012 incident in Douglas County.
Probate Judge Kathleen Gomes was to set his child support for his four girls, who are under the guardianship of their grandfather Marvin Woods.
Since Lang was not in court, Judge Gomes did not set the child support payments. Until the next court date, Judge Gomes ordered the $4,000, which Lang has paid in child support payments, to go to Woods.
The judge also commented on any future monies ending up in Lang's pockets.
"There's another chunk of money that's going to be coming," she said. "Because of that, I'm also ordering we be given notice, this court be notified immediately upon any monies that Mr. Lang may receive, because I don't know what's going to happen to that money. Obviously my biggest concern is for the benefit of the children."
Lang is expected to be released from Douglas County, Ga., jail around May 8 or 9.
Judge Gomes set the next court date for May 21 at 1 p.m.
After he's released in Georgia, the judge ordered Lang to take a DNA test to find out whether he's the father of the youngest child involved in the case.
