MEADVILLE, Pa. -- A Pennsylvania woman who claims Michael Jordan fathered her son has been sentenced to a week in jail for not complying with a court order.

A Crawford County judge barred 35-year-old Lisa Miceli of Meadville from contacting the former NBA star, his family or his representatives. Miceli also had to write a letter promising she would comply.

The judge says Miceli wrote she couldn't comply because she believes her son is being cheated out of child support.

Jordan sued Miceli this year to enforce a 2005 agreement that required her to stop contacting him after two DNA tests showed he wasn't the boy's father. Jordan's attorneys say Miceli continues to violate the deal, which Miceli says she was forced to sign.
