In a letter sent to judge Mark Epstein, the actor admits he cannot make the court-ordered hand-outs that will keep him out of jail.

AceShowbiz - Former Dukes Of Hazzard star John Schneider is prepared to face a long stretch behind bars after revealing he can't meet the payments he has been ordered to hand over to his ex-wife.

In a letter sent to judge Mark Epstein and obtained by The Blast, the actor admits he cannot make the court-ordered hand-outs that will keep him out of jail, so he's ready to do some serious time.

John has been told he must file his tax returns for 2014 to 2016 and pay his ex half of all his income by the end of 2018, but he insists he's financially strapped and rather than waste the court's time, he'd prefer do serve the 120 days in jail currently hanging over him.

Schneider walked free from jail after spending five hours behind bars for failing to pay spousal support to his ex, Elvira, last month.

He was released due to jail overcrowding.

John was incarcerated for failure to pay more than $150,000 (GBP112,000) in support payments to Elvira, who asked the judge overseeing their bitter stand-off to consider putting Schneider behind bars back in February.

John was given a month to get his finances in order and told to transfer the deeds of his home in Apple Valley, California to his estranged wife to satisfy the delinquency. He has also been handed 240 hours of community service.
