There are deadbeat moms, too.
We recently published photos of several deadbeat dads. Well, moms who don't have custody of their children can also be arrested.
That's the case with 35-year-old Vinetta Mitchell, who was charged Monday by Richmond County authorities with failure to pay child support. Her bond is listed as 18,359.94, and we assume that is he amount she owes in back child support.
The US Census Bureau keeps track of deadbeat dads and moms. In 2007, the most recent data available, 25.8% of dads due child support didn't get it. Compare that to 23.4% of moms.
