Raul Cardona, man accused of being "deadbeat dad," pleads not guilty to charges

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Raul Cardona, labeled one of the worst deadbeat dads in Milwaukee County history, waived his right to a preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty on Monday, September 15th. Cardona faces four felony counts of "failure to support child."

Prosecutors say Cardona has been a wanted man in Milwaukee County since 2008. He had a daughter in the area back in 1993 and a year later, was ordered to pay more than $500 a month in child support. Investigators say he only made one payment.

Cardona is due back in court on September 30th.
