GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro Mayor Robbie Perkins has been found in civil contempt over post-separation support owed to his wife, the News & Record is reporting.

According to the paper, Judge Tom Foster issued the ruling in Guilford County District Court on Friday morning.

The judge ordered him to pay $4,000 by noon today on $32,000 in post-separation arrears to ex-wife Carole Perkins. Perkins made that payment this morning, along with $1,000 owed toward his ex-wife’s legal fees.
