Prosecutors: ‘Most-Wanted Deadbeat Dad’ Owes $77,000

QUINCY (CBS) – A man listed as one of the state’s worst deadbeat dads faced a judge on Friday in Quincy.

Gerard Colucci was arraigned on charges of failure to support a child and failing to comply with a support order. Authorities say Colucci has missed more than 335 child support payments going back several years, and owes more than $77,000 in payments, penalties, and interest.

Colucci’s attorney, John DeVito, says Colucci now co-owns a company in Las Vegas where he was arrested and would be able to make support payments.

The child’s mom, Melissa Cosman, says Gerard Colucci has never seen his now 16 year old daughter, has fled from payments before, and has not paid child support in years.
