The world's worst father has been put in jail for two-and-a-half years after he owed $1 million in unpaid child support and refused to pay it.

Robert Sand has owed money to his ex-wives for almost 20 years. He has been on the run in Thailand and the Philippines, but was arrested in December and deported to America.

He pleaded guilty to traveling abroad with the intention of not making his payments and was ordered to pay more than $900,000 in child support.

His ex-wife, Rita Sand, filed a legal complaint against him in 1996. Back then, he was ordered to pay his wife $750 a week.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

Eventually, he remarried, had another child, and divorced. He then owed that wife $625 a week.

It was then that he fled to Florida, then Thailand, to avoid paying his ex-wives.

He and the second wife were married for ten years, living off of Sand's $600,000 salary from auctioning cars.

Sand was only caught because he attempted to use false legal documents in the Philippines. 

"This Father's Day will find Sand behind bars, finally being held to account for his abandonment," the United States attorney for the Eastern District, Loretta E. Lynch, said.
