It took a long time, but justice finally caught up with Scott Carlson.
The retired Army colonel is on his way to prison after being convicted of conspiracy and attempted theft by deception in a bizarre child support case three years ago. The "deadbeat dad" will have to do up to two years in a Pennsylvania lockup. His last court appeal has just been denied..
Regular readers of MilitaryCorruption.com (see related stories box below) will recall we covered the case of the cold-hearted colonel who thought he could cheat his way out of making increased child support payments for his own flesh-and-blood. What a dirtbag!
We can only wonder what the nine year-old girl thinks of "daddy" now, if she has been told that her "father" tried to deny he was her parent? He knows what he did with the female SP4 he got pregnant and promised to take care of their baby.
A SCHEME TO AVOID RESPONSIBILITY FAILS
But Carlson figured he could worm his way out of paying more bucks if he got a buddy to take a DNA test for him.
Enter now-retired Army Col. Bruce Adkins. Both Carlson and Adkins were classmates at the once-respected Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, Pa. Adkins was having some trouble with his studies, so the smarter (some might say craftier) Carlson pressured his "pal" to to thank him by participating in a scheme to deny the mother not only more money, but her claim that Carlson fathered the child.
Adkins stupidly agreed to take the paternity test for Carlson, using faked ID. He was caught in the act and both men were charged.
The 47 year-old bird colonel from Georgia quickly "rolled over" and testified for the prosecution. He got mercy from the court and was able to retire without going to jail.
CARLSON KEEPS ON LYING ABOUT FATHERING CHILD
Carlson, still in denial or just lying again, to this day claims he isn't the father of the little girl whom he sought to deprive his financial support.
We would like to know why Carlson got to retire in grade. Don't regulations state that you retire in the last grade "satisfactorily served in?" That should have resulted in Carlson being busted down to light colonel, not being retired on a fat 0-6 pension.
This "deadbeat dad," 55, doesn't deserve any "Father's Day" cards, now or in the future, unless he gets on his knees and begs forgiveness for his selfish and deceitful actions.
Using the Lord's name in his phony baloney claim he didn't father the child, just shows he has no shame, and has yet to learn his lesson.
