Court recovers $70,000-plus in child-support case


More than $70,000 in unpaid child support has been recovered recently by the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office. The money could help the two Seymour children involved eventually go to college.

“This is a very large recovery for the children in this case,” Chief Deputy Prosecutor Amy Travis said Thursday.

Travis said the diligent work of Deputy Prosecutor Donald Frey with the child support division made it possible to collect the $70,579.59 child support owed by the noncustodial parent.

Because of confidentiality concerns for the children, names of the family involved were not released.

Frey said the funds were covered during the process of preparing the paperwork for a Class C felony charge of nonsupport against the absent parent.
