A Germantown Md. Man to Serve Time for Criminal Non-Support and Related Charges

Ronald Dixon will serve 5 years in prison.

FREDERICK, MD. (LG) A Germantown, Maryland man was sentenced in Frederick County Circuit Court this week to a total of 28 years in the Division of Corrections, with all but 5 years suspended.

In a press release, States Attorney Charlie Smith stated that 56 year old Ronald Dixon was convicted of constructive criminal contempt of his order to pay child support and criminal non support of his now 7 year old minor child. Smith said Dixon has never paid child support and his arrears exceeded $44,000.

The State further proved that Dixon counterfeited an MVA compliance letter, normally issued by the Frederick County Department of Social Services, in order to obtain his driving privilege after it had been suspended for child support non-compliance. Mr. Dixon also altered a previously issued letter and forged the signature of his case agent. He then issued the document at the MVA and his privilege was fraudulently reinstated, Smith continued.

When Dixon gets out of prison he will be placed on 3 years of supervised probation, added Smith.
