Project Amnesty, a pilot program for delinquent parents who have failed to make child support payments, will be implemented in six California counties for two months beginning Sunday--Father’s Day. Under the plan, discussed at a press conference in Los Angeles, violators will not be prosecuted if they make arrangements during the amnesty period--June 16 to Aug. 16--to pay the money they owe. The test program will be implemented in Orange, Riverside, Ventura, Kern, Santa Cruz and Sacramento counties. Tom Warriner, deputy secretary of the state Health and Welfare Agency, said more than $850 million in court-ordered child support remains unpaid in California.
