OKLAHOMA CITY -- Thousands of dollars of child support goes unpaid each year. But tracking down the culprits is not an easy job for the Department of Human Services.

"We've exhausted all other remedies," said Debra West, DHS regional administrator. "They've indicated to us they just need to go to jail."

West is talking about people like Robert Allen Smith, who owes more than $200,000 to 12 children.
