(CBS/AP) PATERSON, N.J. - A New Jersey man who won a $338 million Powerball jackpot is due in court Monday over allegations of unpaid child support.
Pedro Quezada, 44, is scheduled to appear in state Superior Court in Paterson. He was issued a child support warrant after authorities said he owes about $29,000 in back support. Authorities announced Saturday that the warrant was stayed until the scheduled court appearance.
Quezada claimed a lump-sum payment last week worth $221 million, or about $152 million after taxes. Sheriff's department spokesman Bill Maer said the state Lottery Division generally satisfies such judgments before winnings are released.
The unpaid child support payments go back to 2009. It's not known which of Quezada's five children are covered under the payments.
