Casey Parsons pleaded guilty to 15 counts of federal fraud and identity theft Wednesday morning in Winston-Salem, in exchange for prosecutors dropping more than 60 other counts after her indictment in July.

..."I was elated because I never heard Casey, in her whole entire life, admit to doing anything wrong," Casey's sister Tammy Gray told Channel 9 Tuesday afternoon.

Mother of missing teen Erica Parsons pleads guilty to fraud

Posted: Wednesday, October 1, 2014 9:45 pm


Parsons remains free pending sentencing Feb. 10. She faces 199 years in prison and $3.75 million in fines if she receives the maximum penalty on all charges.

...Wednesday’s plea could discredit Casey Parsons in the eyes of jurors or a judge, if she’s charged in connection with Erica’s disappearance, said James Wyatt, a Charlotte-based defense attorney.

It’s common for defense attorneys to negotiate with federal prosecutors in the months between a plea and sentencing, Wyatt said. Parsons could agree to trade information about Erica’s disappearance in return for a reduced sentence.

“If the Parsonses had knowledge about the disappearance or murder of Erica, then it is likely that their lawyer would ... try to work out an agreement about how that information would be used and what charges could be brought,” Wyatt said.

But it’s a risk, Wyatt said. Information the Parsonses divulge could be used against them.

Erica Parsons photo, info distributed on coupon circular

Casey Parsons, the adoptive mother of missing teenager Erica Lynn Parsons says the family is happy that Erica’s picture is posted in this week’s coupon circular.

...

Parsons said people seem to think Erica is dead and she hopes this posting will help them realize she’s missing.

Casey said she and husband, Sandy, have been pushing for Erica’s picture to be placed on billboards, coupon circulars and other places.

She said they contacted the Center for Missing and Exploited Children to see if Erica’s picture could be included in a circular.

A Post reporter has requested an interview with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Parsons also said she believes Erica is “out there” and said the reason she’s not come forward may have to do with her son James.

“Maybe being afraid of James,” Casey said.

I guess it's Jame's turn to be thrown under the bus.
The key word is MAYBE.
And who is James????
James is the older half brother who first reported her missing.....
Is this like MAYBE she got on a bus and MAYBE took a trip?
MAYBE to some relative who has no clue as to what is happening?

Wheels on the bus go round and round...

...She had strong words for the people she holds responsible for her daughter’s disappearance.

“I don’t have anything to say to them. You met with me to talk about giving my daughter back; 10 months and 15 days later my child goes missing. Be real, not psychotic nuts,” Carolyn said.

Carolyn said she doesn’t trust Casey and Sandy, but that “no parent wants to think that these people could do something, to think these people could kill somebody else’s child.”

Carolyn said she just wants to know what really happened to Erica, and she urged Sandy and Casey to speak up.

“Enough is enough, and it’s time to come forward and tell the truth,” she said.

Casey Parsons pleads guilty to 15 federal charges

Posted: Oct 01, 2014 9:28 AM PST Updated: Oct 01, 2014 12:53 PM PST


A source with federal government told WBTV that by pleading guilty to the charges, Parsons admitted to collecting federal assistance for Erica when she was not living there. She also admitted to filing taxes using Erica's name when she was not living there.

...In motions filed last week, the government lists dozens of subpoenas requesting documents and electronic records from several banks, medical institutions like the Stanly County Dental Clinic and Carolinas Healthcare, the Great Lakes Educational Corporation, phone companies like Sprint, and even the Cabarrus County Department of Social Services and the Rowan County Department of Social Services.

Attorneys representing the Parsons in the financial crime trial do not want testimony about any alleged of abuse of Erica or any discussion of her disappearance to be allowed to be introduced.

I think this was referring to the alleged abuse Erica may have endured from the Parsons. The abuse allegations were already headlines when she said this.

Alleged abuse to be left out of Parsons fraud case

Rad Berky, WCNC 8:20 p.m. EDT October 10, 2014

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The fraud trial for the adoptive father of Erica Parsons is scheduled to begin next week but jurors will not be hearing anything about the criminal investigation into what happened to the little girl.

According to a brief filed in court Friday, lawyers for the government and Sandy Parsons have agreed not to bring up questions about what happened to her or allegations that she was abused.

...While husbands and wives are normally not permitted to testify against one another, the legal brief filed today says that some "non-hearsay statements" made by Casey may be presented at the trial.

Update: Trial in Sandy Parsons fraud case set for next week in Winston-Salem

Posted: Tuesday, October 14, 2014 8:45 am | Updated: 11:12 am, Tue Oct 14, 2014.



GREENSBORO — The federal fraud trial for a father of a missing adopted girl is scheduled to begin next week in Winston-Salem, officials said today.

Sandy Wade Parsons has been indicted on more than 40 counts. Those include one count of conspiracy to commit fraud, 20 counts of theft of government property, 20 counts of mail fraud, one count of false statement regarding food stamps and one count of aggravated identity theft.

...The U.S. Attorney's office estimates the trial will last three or four days, according to a court document. It's unclear how long jury selection will take, due to the publicity surrounding the disappearance of Erica Parsons and search for her.

Erica Parsons' Biological Mother Pushing for Changes to Home School Laws

Posted: Oct 21, 2014 7:09 PM PST Updated: Oct 21, 2014 7:22 PM PST


The biological mother of missing Rowan County teenager, Erica Parsons, is calling on lawmakers to pass a bill that requires the government to check up on children who are home schooled.

Erica Parsons was home schooled by her adoptive parents. Her biological mother says that's part of the reason no one knew Erica was missing for more than a year and a half.

...My Fox Carolinas found out there are hardly any requirements in North Carolina for parents who home school their children. Carolyn Parsons said, “I think there needs to be more accountability.”

Casey Parsons takes stand in fraud trial

Posted: Saturday, October 25, 2014 1:36 a.m.


Sandy Parsons — the adoptive father of missing teen Erica Parsons — took the stand in his own defense Friday during his trial on federal fraud charges and deflected blame to his wife, who earlier took a plea deal on the same charges.

A jury began deliberating Friday afternoon but did not reach a verdict. Deliberations will resume Monday morning.

...According to news outlets, Sandy Parsons was the only defense witness called after the government presented its evidence. Fox46 reported that Sandy Parsons testified he simply signed papers his wife put in front of him without reading them and that “Casey tells me what I have to do.”

Jury in Parsons’ fraud case to reconvene Monday

Updated: 6:35 p.m. Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 | Posted: 10:43 a.m. Friday, Oct. 24, 2014


WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. —

The jury is trying to decide if the adoptive father of a missing Rowan County teenager is guilty of fraud and identity theft crimes.

Jury just ended deliberations for the day on Friday. It will resume at 9 a.m. Monday. Judge cautioned jurors to not discuss the case over the weekend.

...Sandy Parsons also maintained he was uneducated and can't read or write above a basic level.

But on cross-examination, prosecutors hammered Sandy Parsons, raising suspicion he had no knowledge of anything going on in his household, and never saw a single piece of mail.

Changing the laws re home schooling would not have accomplished anything. Again, they could say the child had moved to another location, was somewhere else... Laws do not create morality but only enforce it when it is possible....

Father of missing teen Erica Parsons found guilty of financial fraud

Posted: Monday, Oct. 27, 2014


“The investigation into the missing person’s case of Erica Parsons will certainly continue,” Rowan Sheriff’s Capt. John Sifford said in an email. “With this just occurring, it is too early to tell what impact this may have on the current investigation.”

...Charlotte defense attorney George Laughrun said the Parsonses being found guilty could give prosecutors ammunition to charge the couple in connection with Erica’s disappearance – even if there’s no physical evidence of homicide or another crime.

“Clearly it (would be) a circumstantial evidence case, and they say that circumstantial evidence is only as strong as its weakest link, but this gives (prosecutors) one more link,” Laughrun said. “They knew she was not there and they tried to hide it by continuing to collect these benefits.”

...Both Parsonses remain free pending sentencing. Casey Parsons will be sentenced Feb. 10. She faces a maximum of 199 years in prison and $3.75 million in fines.

...“I ain’t never filed a tax – Casey fills them out,” he said, WBTV reported. “Casey said ‘sign this,’ so I signed it. … That’s why I got Casey. She takes care of me.”

Custody review continued after Parsons don't appear in court

Posted: Dec 10, 2014 3:53 AM PST Updated: Dec 11, 2014 9:29 AM PST


SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - The hearing is continued for the adoptive parents of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons after they did not appear in court for a review that could have altered the custody of their two youngest children.

Casey and Sandy Parsons were scheduled to appear in court in Salisbury on Thursday morning but did not show up. A source says Casey is in, or has been in, the hospital for an unknown reason.

Sources also say any custody change is unlikely since Casey and Sandy Parsons have both been convicted of fraud, and after facing sentencing in federal court in February.

Government seeks to delay sentencing of Casey Parsons

Posted: Jan 31, 2015 5:01 AM PST Updated: Jan 31, 2015 5:03 AM PST

Prosecutors want to delay the sentencing of Casey Parsons so that it would take place on the same day as sentencing for her husband, Sandy Parsons, in federal court in Winston-Salem.

Casey and Sandy Parsons are the adoptive parents of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Lynn Parsons. Erica Parsons was reported missing in late July of 2013 by her adoptive brother, but had not actually been seen for more than a year before the report was filed.

Despite an extensive investigation by the Rowan Sheriff's Office, the SBI, and the FBI, no trace of Erica Parsons, dead or alive, has ever been found.  Investigators have collected evidence from the Parsons former home on Miller Chapel Road, as well as property owned by other family members.

...Sandy will be sentenced on February 18.

Casey Parsons, 39, pleaded guilty to 16 similar federal charges Oct. 1. She had been scheduled to be sentenced February 10 in Winston-Salem, but now prosecutors want to have Casey and Sandy sentenced on the same day.

When you "misplace" a child and fail to notify authorities, you are not fit to be a parent! Just my view.

I couldn't agree more. And we all know they did far worse than "misplace". I hope both Casey and Sandy get slammed during sentencing.

Biological mom has harsh words after news of possible presence of human remains turning up in search

Snipped:

The biological mother of missing teenager Erica Lynn Parsons said she felt numb after hearing dogs detected the possible presence of human remains during two searches at a storage building in southern Rowan County.

Her worst fear, Carolyn Parsons said, is that Erica is not alive

“At the same time, if it is her, at least she’s not suffering anymore,” she said.

...She had strong words for the people she holds responsible for her daughter’s disappearance.


“I don’t have anything to say to them. You met with me to talk about giving my daughter back; 10 months and 15 days later my child goes missing. Be real, not psychotic nuts,” Carolyn said.

Carolyn said she doesn’t trust Casey and Sandy, but that “no parent wants to think that these people could do something, to think these people could kill somebody else’s child.”

Carolyn said she just wants to know what really happened to Erica, and she urged Sandy and Casey to speak up.

“Enough is enough, and it’s time to come forward and tell the truth,” she said.

Seems obvious or am I simplifying this too much?

I'm not sure I understand your question, JAO.  Casey pleaded guilty to 16 charges; Sandy went to trial and was convicted of much more.  As far as I know, they have never revealed anything about Erica, even for a plea deal.  They are both due to be sentenced tomorrow.

Casey and Sandy Parsons to be sentenced to federal prison for fraud on Wednesday

By David Whisenant  WBTV   Posted: Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015

SALISBURY The adoptive parents of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons have a date in federal court on Wednesday to learn what sentence they will serve in prison for fraud.

In November, Sandy Parsons was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to defraud the government, one count of aggravated identity theft, one count of false statement to a government agency, 20 counts of theft of government funds and 20 counts of mail fraud.

Casey Parsons, 39, pleaded guilty to 16 similar federal charges Oct. 1.

An attorney not affiliated with the case told WBTV that witnesses can be called during the sentencing hearing and that those witnesses would be allowed to speak about Erica Parsons, her life with Casey and Sandy Parsons, and her abrupt disappearance from the family’s home on Miller Chapel Road in Rowan County.

...Sentencing is set for 9:30 Wednesday morning at the federal courthouse in Winston-Salem.

First witness testifies in Casey Parsons trial

WCNC Staff and Richard DeVayne, WCNC 11:46 a.m. EST February 18, 2015

SALISBURY, N.C. - The adoptive parents of missing teen Erica Parsons are in court Wednesday to learn what sentence they will face for fraud.

...In Federal Court Wednesday, the government called their first witness to the stand, Angie Miller, who testified that she paid Casey Parsons $10,000 to be a surrogate mother for her.

Miller testified their surrogate agreement included $1000 monthly payments to Parsons' church, but said immediately, Casey asked that the money go to her instead because she needed to purchase a washer and dryer. Miller continued that each month from then on, Casey asked the money be given to her instead of the church.

Miller then became emotional as she described when Casey told her that she had miscarried. Miller says she found out later from Casey's sister, Ashley, that Casey was still pregnant and trying to sell her the unborn baby. Miller, with the help of authorities, was able to get her son when he was born months later.

The government says it still has six more witnesses before both Casey and Sandy lawyers will present their character witnesses.

Sister: I watched Erica Parsons so Casey 'wouldn't kill her'

Posted: Feb 18, 2015 9:53 AM PST Updated: Feb 18, 2015 10:00 AM PST

Several people, including family members, testified in federal court Wednesday in a sentencing trial for the adoptive parents of a missing Rowan County teenager.

...Ashley said she saw bruises and marks on Erica. Casey gave Erica to Ashley to look after for a few months so that she "wouldn't kill her," Ashley said. Adding that Casey "couldn't stand the sight of her face." Ashley said her sister told her she had lost control and assaulted Erica.

When Erica first started living with her adoptive parents, she called them "mom" and "dad." Casey didn't like that and decided she should call them by their names, Casey and Sandy, Ashley said. Casey told Erica to never call her "mom" again.

in this article there is a paragraph that states "A spokesman for the Rowan Sheriff’s office said Erica’s case is “certainly still an active and ongoing investigation.” No state charges have been brought against the Parsonses.
Wednesday’s plea could discredit Casey Parsons in the eyes of jurors or a judge, if she’s charged in connection with Erica’s disappearance, said James Wyatt, a Charlotte-based defense attorney.
It’s common for defense attorneys to negotiate with federal prosecutors in the months between a plea and sentencing, Wyatt said. Parsons could agree to trade information about Erica’s disappearance in return for a reduced sentence.
“If the Parsonses had knowledge about the disappearance or murder of Erica, then it is likely that their lawyer would ... try to work out an agreement about how that information would be used and what charges could be brought,” Wyatt said.
But it’s a risk, Wyatt said. Information the Parsonses divulge could be used against them."

Son describes family’s shocking abuse of missing teen Erica Parsons

Posted: Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015

WINSTON-SALEM Erica Parsons lived a life of punishment and terror at the hands of her adoptive parents and siblings before disappearing altogether in 2011, according to testimony Wednesday during a sentencing hearing for Sandy and Casey Parsons.

...James Parsons, who was about 18 when 13-year-old Erica went missing, said he and the other children in the family routinely abused the girl.

“I would hit her, physically abuse her, fists, belts,” James Parsons said under oath Wednesday.

He said he abused the girl from the time he was age 5 and stopped it when he was 16.

“I didn’t want to hit her no more – I couldn’t stand it,” he said.

He said his mother Casey Parsons encouraged the other children to abuse Erica and he saw his mother often beat her.

“She would beat her with a belt if she didn’t listen,” James Parsons said. “Momma would bend her fingers back.”

...Erica was often locked in a closet in the various homes the family lived in, James Parsons said. Sometimes she would be beaten for relieving herself in the closet, he said.

Food was often withheld from her as punishment, he said.

“Early in life, she’d eat dog food from a can,” he said.

James Parsons said the last time he saw Erica was in 2011, when she was standing in a corner as punishment.

“She didn’t look too good – she looked like a zombie,” he testified. “She said she did not feel good. She said she could not breath too good.”

James Parsons said Erica was gone the next morning and he never saw her again. His parents came back that morning to the house and he was told that Erica had gone to live with her biological grandmother.

“Momma looked normal. Daddy looked sick, like he was about to throw up,” James Parsons testified. “Momma went on her recliner with the computer. Daddy, it was a blank stare.”

Parsons’ home a house of horror, family says

Tax fraud hearing reveals gruesome details of suffering inflicted on child
Posted: Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015


WINSTON-SALEM Erica Parsons lived a stark life of punishment and terror at the hands of her adoptive parents and siblings before vanishing in 2011, according to testimony Wednesday during a sentencing hearing for Sandy and Casey Parsons.

...But the hearing quickly turned into a shocking catalog – and the most detailed public account to date of what investigators know – of abuse Erica suffered. It poured out hour after sickening hour when Assistant U.S. Attorney Anand Ramaswamy sought to increase the penalties the couple faced by introducing evidence of other wrongdoing – including, he said, failure to report a death.

...Tara Cataldo, the FBI case agent on the girl’s disappearance, said that investigators, armed with a search warrant, inspected the Parsonses’ home in August 2013. They noticed holes in the wall beside a bedroom closet that seemed to be from an old eye-hook lock typically used to hold screen doors closed.

Carpet and wall board from the closet were sent to the FBI laboratory, and traces of Erica’s blood and other DNA – believed to be from saliva or urine – were detected, she said.


...Janet Parsons, Sandy’s stepmother and Casey’s mother-in-law, also testified Wednesday. She said that for a time in 2011, they all lived together in her China Grove home. Janet Parsons and her husband currently have custody of the family’s two youngest children.

“Erica wasn’t treated as kindly as the others,” she said. “She had to do more chores. She was kind of like a little Cinderella – she had to do the chores.”

Janet Parsons said that Casey Parsons and the rest of her family once went to the beach for a short visit, and Erica was left in the house alone. Her grandfather found her hiding, and she said she was told not to be seen while the others were at the beach.

“We had no knowledge she was there, which is scary if you think about it,” Janet Parsons testified. “She was hidden.”

Erica Parsons’ parents to be sentenced Friday

By Mark Washburn  03/26/2015 5:03 PM  Updated 03/26/2015 5:08 PM


...Casey and Sandy Parsons are to be sentenced Friday for financial crimes – tax fraud and cashing benefit checks after the girl disappeared from their Rowan County home in 2011. But neither has been charged in the disappearance of the girl, who they say they gave to a woman who claimed to be Erica’s biological grandmother.

...Penalties in the extreme

Casey Parsons, Erica’s adoptive mother, pleaded guilty in October to one count of conspiracy to defraud the government, five counts of mail fraud, four counts of aiding in the preparation of a false tax return, four counts of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. She faces a maximum of 199 years in prison and fines totaling $3.75 million.

Her husband, Sandy Parsons, refused a plea bargain and was found guilty in October of one count of conspiracy to defraud the government, one count of aggravated identity theft, one count of false statement to a government agency, 20 counts of theft of government funds and 20 counts of mail fraud. He faces a maximum of 509 years in prison and fines totaling $6 million.

Casey and Sandy Parsons sentenced to combined 18 years in prison

Posted: Mar 26, 2015 6:49 AM PST Updated: Mar 27, 2015 2:44 PM PST  By David Whisenant

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - The adoptive parents of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons were sentenced in federal court to a combined total of 18 years in prison Friday.

Sandy Wade Parsons, 41, and Casey Stone Parsons, 40, were sentenced by United States District Judge Thomas D. Schroeder in Winston-Salem.

Sandy Parsons was sentenced to 96 months in prison; 3 years supervised release; $14,062.00 in restitution; and a special assessment of $4,300.00.

Casey Parsons was sentenced to 120 months in prison; 3 years supervised release; $41,814.00 in restitution; and a special assessment of $1,500.00.

They were taken into custody immediately.

...Judge Schroeder lectured both Casey and Sandy as each heard their sentence.  He said that he believed that they had abused Erica in such an extreme manner that when something happened to her in 2011, they refused to get medical help because the abuse would be evident.

Schroeder described Erica Parsons as a "defenseless little girl who only wanted to be loved," but instead was the victim of "extreme" abuse.  He said that he believed the earlier testimony that Erica was forced to live in a closet, that she was constantly in fear of soiling herself, and that if she did, she was punished.  Schroeder said he believed that on the Erica died in 2011, and that on that night she was first punished for complaining that she felt bad, then died and was taken and abandoned by Casey and Sandy in what the judge called a "horrible, horrible act committed in the dark of night."

"I have sentenced thousands of people over the years," Judge Schroeder told the couple, "but no case I've ever had is as disturbing as this one."

CHARLOTTE, NC (Mark Washburn/The Charlotte Observer) -

Casey Parsons, adoptive mother of missing teenager Erica Parsons, has been sent to a federal prison hospital in Texas to serve her sentence.

...During her sentencing hearing in Winston-Salem, Parsons’ attorney, Alec Carpenter IV of Greensboro, asked U.S. District Judge Thomas Schroeder to request she be placed in a prison where she could receive treatment for an undisclosed disorder. Parsons has suffered for years from complications from a gastric bypass procedure.

Parsons filed an appeal of her conviction May 5. Her husband, Sandy Parsons, 41, serving an eight-year sentence in the crimes at Butner Federal Correctional Institution north of Durham, has also appealed his conviction.

A few posts above, the mother stated Erica was probably afraid to come home because of JAMES!!! Talk about attempting deflection and abdication of role as a parent.

The new link provided by CP stated this:

"....Erica was adopted by the Parsonses as an infant, and the couple received monthly government assistance checks of $634 because Erica had hearing problems and a learning disability. Her biological mother had at one point been married to Sandy Parsons’ brother, but Erica’s father was another man.

In the February hearing, her adoptive brother James Parsons, 21, and other members of the Parsons family described a pattern of physical and emotional abuse directed at Erica, including testimony that Casey Parsons encouraged the family’s other children to abuse Erica from infancy.

James Parsons testified that he once broke Erica’s arm, and shortly afterward decided he could no longer participate in the abuse.

Erica was fed dog food by Casey Parsons as punishment for stealing food or sweets, was often beaten, was frequently locked in a closet and was made to stand in a corner rather than play with other children, family members testified...."

James, an older son, did speak to authorities regarding the treatment of Erica by himself and his parents. I am confident the mother was trying to foist all the blame for Erica "missing" upon her son...he DID rat his parents out.

The abuse:

Personally, they got off way to easy.
Do the sentences also reflect the IRS cheating and lies they were found guilty of?

From above:
"....Casey Parsons, Erica’s adoptive mother, pleaded guilty in October to one count of conspiracy to defraud the government, five counts of mail fraud, four counts of aiding in the preparation of a false tax return, four counts of wire fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. She faces a maximum of 199 years in prison and fines totaling $3.75 million.

Her husband, Sandy Parsons, refused a plea bargain and was found guilty in October of one count of conspiracy to defraud the government, one count of aggravated identity theft, one count of false statement to a government agency, 20 counts of theft of government funds and 20 counts of mail fraud. He faces a maximum of 509 years in prison and fines totaling $6 million. ...."

Concerned residents bring in man with trained dogs to search for Erica Parsons

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Two local residents who are concerned about missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons have called in a man from Illinois who is known for searching for missing persons.

Shannon Moss and Wanda Rogers decided to take the unusual step of contacting K-9 Specialties after reading about the success the owner and his dogs had in finding missing children.

“We don’t want people to forget she’s still missing, she’s not been found, we’ve got to find her, whatever we got to do we’ve got to come together in Rowan County and find her," Rogers said. “People ask me why am I doing this why I haven’t gave up, it's because she needs to be found, she…it’s personal now, I didn’t know her, but I do now, so it’s personal. She’s got to be found.  She is a human being and my biggest thing if they, if something really bad happened to her, she’s been throwed away like a piece of trash and she’s not a piece of trash, she is a little girl, she deserves to be found, and I’m not giving up.”
