Criminal Nonsupport Unit

The Criminal Nonsupport Unit is comprised of two assistant prosecuting attorneys and two support staff employees.

This unit handles these specialized cases from indictment to conviction. Charges of criminal nonsupport are referred only from the Franklin County Child Support Enforcement Unit to our Criminal Nonsupport Unit for review and further investigation before any charges are presented to the Franklin County Grand Jury for indictment. Upon receipt of these referrals, the Criminal Nonsupport Unit personnel conduct interviews of custodial parents prior to Grand Jury presentation and maintain close contact with custodial parents throughout the prosecution process.
