FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jackson, MS - An Oregon man has been forced to catch up on his child support obligation in Mississippi, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.
Anthony Ray Flock, 45, of Winston, Oregon, paid his back child support of over $14,000 on Thursday. Flock was indicted by a Jackson County Grand Jury on one count of felony non-support of a child in 2011. The payment ends criminal prosecution of the case.
“Our number one goal with these type of cases is to get our state’s children the support they are owed by their own parents,” said Attorney General Hood. “If we have to drag our deadbeats to court and force them to pay or go to jail, then we will.”
The Attorney General’s Child Desertion Unit under the leadership of Director and Special Assistant Attorney General Deshun T. Martin prosecuted this case.
