Love goes out to the Levert family as they have lost another son, Sean. One of three members of the R&B trio LeVert and son of O’Jays singer Eddie Levert, has died after falling ill while serving a jail term for approx. $85,000 in owed child support (non-support). He was 39.Levert was sent to the Cuyahoga County jail last week for failing to pay child support. He died at Lutheran Hospital in Cleveland late Sunday, less than an hour after he was taken there from the jail.
His brother Gerald Levert, died in 2006 at age 40 of an accidental mix of prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
From what I understand his sentence was 1 year and 10 months. I didn’t even know they would give you that much time for child support!!! AND…from what I’ve been told…you still owe the money when you get out. My question though, with all due respect, is, “Why didn’t his family just pay the bill?”
