John Schneider Sentenced to Jail After Failing to Pay Alimony to Estranged Wife: Report
John Schneider is reportedly facing jail time for failing to pay his estranged wife spousal support
Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider has reportedly been sentenced to jail for not paying over $150,000 in delinquent alimony.
John, 58, was sentenced to three days in the Los Angeles County Jail on Monday, according to TMZ, for not paying the spousal support due to his estranged wife, Elvira “Elly” Schneider, by mid-March.
In addition to jail time, John, who famously played Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard (1979-85), will also have to complete 240 hours of community service.
A rep for Schneider did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
In February, the outlet reported that a judge gave him until March 14 to pay more than $150,000 in support to Elvira. At the time, the judge reportedly ordered John to transfer his Apple Valley property to Elvira and to resolve the property’s tax liens. TMZ reported that he did not resolve the tax liens.
Elvira filed for divorce in Los Angeles county on Nov. 14, 2014, after 21 years of marriage. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split, according to court documents.
In September 2016, he was ordered to pay Elvira $18,911 every month, TMZ reported.
The couple has three adult children: Leah, Chasen, and Karis.
