Powerball winner pays back child support

The winner of the $338 million Powerball jackpot paid $30,000 in back child support to the mother of three of his children Monday and had the warrant cleared during a hearing in a New Jersey family court.

The payment clears Pedro Quezada's record, probation officials said during the hearing in Paterson.

The warrant for Quezada was originally issued in 2009. He owed a total of $29,000 in child support, according to William Maer of the Passaic County Sheriff's Office. Quezada has five children, ages 5 to 23. It is not clear which children are covered by the payments.

Quezada told Family Court Judge Ernest Caposela that the children will now live with him.
