A deputy constable with the office of Harris County Precinct 7 Constable May Walker arrested John David Adams for failing to pay court-ordered child support. The Houston father of two was apprehended after investigators from the Attorney General’s Child Support Division located Adams and contacted Constable Walker to make the arrest. Adams, 40, owes more than $74,000 in unpaid child support.
“Texans will not tolerate parents who neglect their children,” Attorney General Abbott said. “Parents who refuse to pay their court-ordered child support must be held accountable for violating the law. Thanks to Constable Walker and her deputies, a negligent parent was brought to justice for failure to support his kids.”
In December 1993, a Montgomery County court ordered Adams to pay $300 a month in child support. After Adams repeatedly violated the courts order, an investigator with the Attorney General’s Child Support Division presented the case to Montgomery County District Attorney Michael McDougal for criminal prosecution. In May, a Montgomery County grand jury returned a criminal indictment and an arrest warrant was issued.
