McConville pointed out that only because he was disappointed with the divorce. McConville apparently violated the child’s vital interests after a court ruled that he needed to pay the child’s maintenance.

Judge Kevin Phillips did not believe McConville’s comments, saying he had defied and taunted the court and sentenced him to 30 days in prison. The judge also said McConville could face greater criminal risk if he fails to tell the truth.
