A Connecticut man has been sentenced to a year in jail for failing to pay $127,000 in child support to an Indiana woman who is the mother of two of his children.

Porter County Superior Court Judge Mary Harper also ordered three years of probation for Andrew Givens.

The 48-year-old Riverside, Connecticut, man apologized before his sentencing Tuesday. Givens pleaded guilty in October to a felony charge of failing to pay child support for becoming delinquent on payments to Jennifer Donohue, a Portage woman who is mother to his 11- and 13-year-old children.

Givens is being held in the Porter County Jail.
