Technology, you clever minx. A father intent on hiding paying less child support was forced to pay more after his PDA revealed his true earnings. Timothy Gooden of Queens claimed that he didn't have steady work, so a judge ordered him to pay $60 a week in child support for his 8 year old. But it seems that he gave his ex-girlfriend his old PDA - which kept receiving his emails. Including the ones that mentioned getting paid $1,500 and a possible $35,000 job! The Post reports that now Gooden has to pay $100 per week. Technology, doling out justice once every ten times there's a snafu.
