I agree..your example is a bad analogy
"Better, what if both shot her? Do you care which bullet most rapidly led to the death? Yes, both go to jail."
Ah...but only one got her pregnant....and no one is ever successfully sued for child support that isn't their child.......at least when DNA is available....
So...no, you can't convict the wrong person of fathering the child. ANy more than the mother can claim that Mick Jagger is the father.....
you've got to get the RIGHT one.
What if ten other men had slept with her in the same 12 hour period? Maybe she's a nympho. And we knew who they were. Do we go after them for child support simply 'because they were there and had sex with her'? YOu'd say that was silly, right? Well, it is the same for the one who was NOT the father.
the state either has to spent 1 million on a super expensive DNA test....or the state could cut its losses and pay the child support.....until a cheaper test is designed.....
