Albany, GA (AP) - A 38-year-old woman was charged with five
counts of theft after convincing a man to pay child support for her
friend's baby.

Dougherty County Sheriff's Capt. Craig Dodd said Regina Thompson
used a friend's baby girl to convince her ex-boyfriend Joseph
Golden that the child was his so she could get child support.

He said Thompson was keeping her friend's child during the week
while the mother was attending classes. He said the girl's mother,
Lastraga McCloud, didn't know anything about the plot.

Dodd said the ex-boyfriend doled out more than $1,600 in five
payments over the next two years. He said "he was convinced the
little girl was his. They had pictures made at her birthday party
and everything."
