Howard Veal, 44, of western Michigan will have two years to think about what it means to be a father. Veal is accused of fathering 23 children with 14 different women. He has been sentenced to two years in prison for failing to pay child support in the amount of $533,000. There are 14 cases pending against Veal. Upon sentencing, the judge stated, "Animals procreate. Human beings are supposed to nurture their children." That's an understatement.
