The Parent Trap: County Lists Worst Deadbeat Dads
The L.A. County Child Services Department's Web site has a fairly new feature -- a Most Wanted Delinquent Parent List of parents who have warrants out for their arrest for non-payment of child-support fees. This is, almost by definition, a who's who of deadbeat dads. Its worst offender is currently David Ough, who owes $198,954.70 for the support of a daughter and son, and who's been ducking the law for three years. The site's notation for him reads, "It is believed that Mr. Ough is the president and owner of a consulting company."
