WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man fighting for custody of the son he did not know he had has won a legal challenge.
In April 2011, Greg Johns found out through a mutual friend that he had a six-month-old son his ex-girlfriend had put up for adoption without his consent. Since then, he has fought for custody of the boy.
Johns says he won an appeal recently after judges said his constitutional rights were violated.
Johns says the adoption agency has 35 days to appeal.
