CORNYN ANNOUNCES ARREST OF THE MOST WANTED CHILD SUPPORT EVADER
Ollie Lynn Little arrested in De Leon (Comanche County)
AUSTIN - Texas Attorney General John Cornyn today announced the arrest of the most wanted Child Support Evader in Texas - Ollie Lynn Little of Rising Star (Eastland County), Texas, who owes $131,848 in child support for his son in Midland. Little's case is the second to be resolved since the Attorney General announced his most recent list of the ten most wanted Evaders on January 31, 2001. Henry Lee Towers, Jr. was arrested Friday in Fairborn, Ohio. Towers, formerly of Dallas, owes $26,939 for his son in Paris, Texas.
"We have now brought to justice the most wanted Child Support Evader in Texas. My office will continue working with law enforcement officials to send the message to all dead beat parents that we are committed to finding them and to making them live up to their responsibilities, or suffer the consequences," Attorney General Cornyn said.
Little was arrested yesterday in De Leon as part of a joint operation by an investigator from the Office of the Attorney General and officers from the De Leon Police Department.
On January 31, Attorney General Cornyn visited the Midland home of Little's ex-wife, Ms. Kelly Childers, and their 13 year-old son to name Ollie Lynn Little the most wanted Child Support Evader in Texas and to ask the public to supply information about the state's worst dead beat. Shortly after the announcement, the Office of the Attorney General received an anonymous tip which led to Little's arrest.
Reacting to the arrest, Ms. Childers said, "I had all but given up prior to Attorney General Cornyn informing me that my son's father had been named to the list. I am amazed they found him only four days after Attorney General Cornyn was in my home."
Little is currently being held without bond in the Comanche County Jail and will be returned to Midland to face the pending charges. Little has only paid six months of child support since his divorce 10 years ago and could face up to six months in jail for each failure to pay his monthly child support.
For a noncustodial parent to be placed on the Evader page, there must be a court-ordered obligation with delinquent support in excess of $5,000 and an arrest warrant issued. The location of parent must be unknown and the parent has not made any payments in the last 6 months. The parent must not be involved in bankruptcy proceedings or receiving welfare benefits. To make information public, the custodial parent must sign a confidentiality waiver and supply a picture of the delinquent parent.
Evaders - with estimated arrears as of January 31, 2001 and last known address:
Jerry Don Posey owes $86,174 for two children in Canyon Lake, Texas.
Randy Wayne Gomez owes $41,881 for six children in Hereford, Texas.
