AOL: A man who has fathered at least 20 children -- and possibly as many as 21 -- is proving a challenge for the state of Tennessee.
Desmond Hachett is only 29, but he told WVLT, a Knoxville, Tenn., CBS affiliate, that he's impregnated at least 11 women. Twice he's fathered four children in the same year, he said.
Hachett's story came to light when his name appeared 11 times on the docket of Knox County Juvenile Child Support Court. The cases represent 15 of his kids.
Hatchett is supposed to pay between $25 and $309 a month to each mother. But the state can only garnish 50 percent of his wages, to split among all the moms, and he only makes minimum wage. Some of the mothers get as little as $1.98.
That means the children often rely on the state for help, one attorney said.
Hatchett told the TV station that the women knew about his growing brood, and that he didn't plan on fathering all these children.
"I didn't intend to have this many. It just happened," he said.
He also said he's done having kids.
