(Support obligations / authority to refuse appeal / contempt) 
A husband appealed from his contempt of court conviction for failing to comply with orders for security for spousal support.  He argued that the trial court had no jurisdiction to jail him over "payments of money".  The Court dismissed the appeal, finding that the husband was given procedural fairness in this matter, and the trial court did have jurisdiction to make the order it did.
