Arrest Warrant Issued

in Deadbeat Dad Case

2/24/2012 1:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Juvenile is a wanted man in Louisiana ... facing 90 days in prison for screwing over his baby mama in a BAD way ... and a judge has now ordered that he be arrested on sight.

According to court papers obtained by TMZ ... the former Cash Money Records rapper -- real name Terius Gray -- owes more than $160,000 in unpaid child support to Dionne Williams, the mother of his 13-year-old son.


In Louisiana, deadbeat dads can be locked up for shirking their child support obligations ... and a judge ruled that Juvenile is no exception ... since he hasn't forked over a dime since December 2006.

There is ONE way for Juv to avoid backin' that ass up into the pokey -- the judge ruled if he comes up with $50k immediately, he can buy himself more time to get caught up with the remaining balance.

Calls to Juv's rep have not been returned.

It against the constitution of Louisiana to put someone in jail for a debt. But Juvenile is probably not aware of that FACT at LAW. He better stay away from Louisiana. Slavery is still alive and well there ask Boosie, BG, and all the other rappers.

Dionne, you dumb bitch!! Your greed will one day ruin your relationship with your son. Did you sell his birthday and christmas gifts too.....before or after you sold your integrity. Juve is one of the best fathers Louisiana has. Wanna meet a deadbeat, call me!!

Child Support isn't just any old debt. It is what needs to be paid to support your child for which you are responsible. If memory serves me correctly, one of his kids died in a fire a few years back and it came out that he hadn't been supporting her and had either abandoned her after a DNA test showed she was his. Whatever the sorry is or was, all of this stuff is not creating a good look for Juvenile. Not only is this hideously unfair to the kids, it's just stupid seeing as condoms are much cheaper. BTW, to all who doubt the 160..., 00 "debt" , they calculate according to what you make so it's possible to owe that if the court set it that high and he never petitioned to lower it.
