Conservative commentator and former political candidate Steve Gill must pay his ex-wife $170,000 in 10 days or go to jail, the Tennessean reports. In a ruling entered into the court on Sunday, Judge James G. Martin sided with Kathryn B. Gill, who was seeking nearly $236,000 for various expenses related to the divorced couple's sons. The couple divorced in 2011, and Kathryn Gill wanted the court to hold Steve Gill in civil contempt for failing to make the payments. Martin found Steve Gill to be in contempt of court, after he did not appear for a hearing or send legal representation. Steve Gill, an attorney himself, said he did not receive any notices of any hearings or that the case was moving beyond the initial complaint.
