Fab 5er King Faces Trial In Child Support Case
Jimmy King Accused Of Failing To Pay $17,000 For Teen Son
University of Michigan "Fab Five" member and ex-Toronto Raptors player Jimmy King is heading to trial in a child support case.
King waived his preliminary hearing Thursday in Pontiac district court. The case moves to Oakland County Circuit Court.
King has said he's working with authorities to resolve the child support claim after being arrested in August. The state says he failed to pay $17,000. King's attorneys say he has paid $60,000 in support of his 17-year-old son.
State authorities say they've been working since 2008 to get King to get up-to-date with the payments, and he ignored warnings to get back on schedule.
King was one of the Wolverines' Fab Five in 1991-92 and 1992-93, when Michigan reached the Final Four of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
