NE Ohio county offers deadbeat amnesty event

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A prosecutor in northeast Ohio is offering an amnesty event to help deadbeat parents meet their legal and financial responsibilities.

Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh in Akron says the two-day event ending Saturday afternoon offers deadbeat parents advice on how to reinstate driver licenses and resolve warrants.

The prosecutor says no one will be arrested at the amnesty event on a Summit County warrant for a child-support matter.

Federal, state and local agencies signed up to provide advice on education, job searches and parenting.

In addition, case managers were ready with advice on child-support payment arrangements and modifications.

The prosecutor says officials would be ready to help deadbeat parents get outstanding child-support warrants resolved without jail.
