An unemployed man in the United Kingdom, who is the father of 21 children, was jailed following his despicable actions, targeting his own family.

53-year-old Chris Harvey of Wales, who fathered his 21 children with nine women, stole their money and then loaned it back to them with interest.

Harvey of Hengoed, Caerphilly, has not worked in 16 years. In order to make a living, he stole money from his children’s mothers and his brother, and became a loan shark.

Harvey stole about £22,000 (about $32,000) from the women who gave him their bank cards to withdraw their benefit money for his children.

When the women did not have money to pay their bills, Harvey lent them some and charged them interest rates of up to 400,000 percent.

Harvey pleaded guilty at the Cardiff Crown Court to fraud, theft and unlicensed money lending. He was sentenced to three years and four months in prison. Judge Michael Fitton QC said: “You have an arrogant and controlling personality.”
