Police, case workers and families want 12 deadbeat dads — seemingly depriving their children of food, clothing and other necessities — to finally pay up.
A dozen Erie County fathers collectively owe $416,000 in child support payments, according to Erie County Job and Family Services records the Register obtained through a public records request.
The request centered on who, either men or women, in Erie County owed the largest child support amounts.
“It’s concerning,” agency executive director Karen Balconi Ghezzi said of the amount owed. “These men are showing negligence.”
