HART — A 60-year-old Walkerville man pleaded “no contest” to first-degree criminal sexual conduct in 27th Circuit Court Monday, June 22, stemming from an incident in Walkerville that occurred 10 years ago with a female victim who was under the age of 13 at the time, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joe Bizon.
Jeffery John Parsons’ prison term will be capped at 15 years in exchange for his plea. A first-degree CSC conviction normally carries a 25-year mandatory minimum. However, due to the victim living in another state, it was her preference that the matter get resolved, Bizon said. The victim is now an adult. Parsons is also not in good health, Bizon added. He will be subject to lifetime monitoring upon his release from prison, Judge Anthony Monton said.
Sentencing is set for Aug. 3 at 9 a.m.
