Michael T. Parsons – Scumbag Child Molester

His Mommy said:
“he is a caring and helpful person”


Porter Superior Judge Roger Bradford said the molestation case involved the most egregious acts of mistreatment he has seen during his nearly 28 years on the bench.

As a result, the judge sentenced former South Haven firefighter Michael Parsons on Friday to the maximum 28 years behind bars for turning an underage girl’s questions about sex into five years of abuse that culminated in acts of torture.

Parsons, who could complete the term in 12 years or less with credit for time served and good behavior, apologized and told the court he was ashamed of his actions.

“I hope in time I can be forgiven for what I’ve done,” he said, voicing doubt he will ever forgive himself.

The 39-year-old pleaded guilty to four felony counts stemming from accusations he began fondling the girl at the age of 10 when she asked him about sex.

The abuse became more aggressive, and police said that in August 2004 Parsons bound the girl to a homemade restraining device with ropes, handcuffs, Saran Wrap and Velcro straps on at least three different occasions while torturing her and performing sex acts.

On one occasion he reportedly forced her to wear his firefighter gas mask, placing tape over the glass viewing area and sticking a sock in the breathing receptacle, police said

Following each of the incidents with the restraining device, Parsons handcuffed the girl to his bed and forced her to have intercourse, police said. The forced sex occurred twice each week, and Parsons reportedly took photos and put them on his home computer.

“You used me to fulfill your sick fantasies,” the girl told Parsons on Friday.

The victim said she suffers from anxiety and depression, does not trust others, is sexually active and feels older than she really is.

“I’m trying to fill this hole in me you’ve dug,” she said.

Parson’s mother, Penelope Parsons, said she does not condone her son’s actions, but told the court he is a caring and helpful person.

Parsons pleaded guilty to felony counts of child molesting, sexual misconduct with a minor, child exploitation and criminal confinement. Prosecutors dropped nine other charges for the guilty plea.

Upon his release from prison, Parsons will be required to register as sex offender. As a result of the maximum sentence, he will not be supervised on probation or undergo treatment, but will have some oversight on parole.
