Wilson County Cracking Down on Deadbeat Parents

Posted June 16, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Just one day after Fathers day, some parents whodon'tdo their jobs are headed to jail. Wilson County deputies launched a search for deadbeat parents early Monday morning.

They've been looking for parents who haven't been paying child support. Cumberland County worked a similar crackdown last week. Child support officers say sheriff's department crackdowns like this one, are successful in bringing in a lot of owed money.
