CLARENCE, N.Y. (WIVB) – A former Clarence resident will spend the next six months in federal prison for failing to pay child support.

Jonathan Dale was sentenced Wednesday for failing to pay around $90,000 in child support owed since May of 1999. The 62-year-old former Clarence resident was also ordered to pay $73,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say Dale did not meet child support obligations and failed to obey court orders to do so. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
