These fathers won't be celebrating Father's Day

Father's Day is right around the corner but what about all of those dads who'll receive nothing from their children because they're deadbeats?

Prosecutors nationwide have vigorously gone after these men. In fact on any given day 50,000 deadbeats are in jail for failure to pay child support.

In Cuyahoga County more than $5 million has been collected from deadbeats since enforcement began in 1999 but that's a drop in the bucket compared to what is still owed.

Society does not have much sympathy for deadbeats with many folks saying it is a child's birthright to be supported by both parents.
