MONROE, La. (AP) - Ouachita Parish has issued its first criminal felony warrant for a parent who is way behind on child support.
Sheriff's deputies are contacting authorities in other states to find 41-year-old Mona Honaker White. The News-Star says reportedly lives in Virginia and allegedly owes $18,000 in child support.
She could not be reached for comment Sunday. An online directory listed a Virginia address for only one Mona White but did not have her phone number. Two Mona Whites in Maryland had different middle initials; none was listed in Washington.
Fourth Judicial District Attorney Jerry Jones said the law making nonsupport a felony changed in 2008, but this is Ouachita Parish's first warrant issued since it was amended. Jones said once White is located, she will be extradited to Ouachita Parish.
