Deputies have been rounding up parents who put off child support

  • Follow Latest News

More than 100 individuals have been arrested or fined this week as authorities completed a countywide crackdown on deadbeat parents.

Throughout the week deputies from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Team have been rounding up parents who are late on their child support payments, Sheriff’s Lt. Scott Gay said Wednesday.

The individuals sought have been charged with contempt of court for defaulting on support payments for their children — some by more than $36,000.

“There appears to be 169 that are delinquent on their child support payments,” Lt. Gay said.
