"Most Wanted" Delinquent Parents Who Owe Child Support

The Department of Social Services has a message to deliquent parents, pay your child support or you may be featured on the next "Most Wanted" poster.

DSS recently put out a poster featuring 18 of the top "Most Wanted" deliquent parents. Among the 18 is a former New Orleans Saint.

Hall of fame inductee Rickey Jackson owes more than $153,000 in unpaid child support. Of the 18, one-third of the parents are from our viewing area. They include Hammond, Denham Springs and Baton Rouge.

This is the first year social services is distributing posters showing the parent, the last known address, the number of children they have and the amount they owe.

DSS says the poster is just the tip of the iceberg. A spokesperson says, "18 is a very small fraction. We have about 60,000 deliquent payers in Louisiana at this point and time. And, these are parents who owe support to their children, but who have not made a payment within the last six months."
