Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott was in Lubbock Monday, in search of one man who he says has turned his back on his daughter.
Curtis Dutton owes more than $45,000 in child support, and there is now a warrant for his arrest. Since he took office in 2002, Attorney General Greg Abbott has made it his mission to locate and prosecute deadbeat parents.
Abbott came to Lubbock Monday, because Dutton is a long haul trucker, with family here. He was last spotted in April, picking up his mail at an abandoned trailer between Southland and Post. Abbott says Dutton has gone years without accepting responsibility for his now 16-year-old daughter.
"It is wrong and illegal for a parent to bring a child into this world and not provide the care and support they desperately need," Abbott said.
Dutton is 43-years-old, 6' 5" tall, and weighs about 250 lbs. He has blue eyes and blonde hair. He has a tattoo on his right arm of a skull smoking a cigarette, wearing a cowboy hat and bandana.
