Cass County man convicted of drug charges
A jury deliberated for just half an hour before finding a Cass County man guilty of delivery of methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to Cass County Prosecutor Victor Fitz.
Christopher Parsons faces up to life in prison.
Parsons admitted to receiving 2 to 3 ounces of methamphetamine per day from someone in South Bend. The drugs were then sold through couriers in the streets of Cass County, according to Fitz.
“Parsons was spreading a vile substance at an alarmingly high rate. Scores of addicts are created through such a profit-making effort. Entire neighborhoods are compromised. Fortunately, alert police work brought it to a halt," Fitz said.
The jury deliberated approximately a half hour before reaching its verdict.
Parsons faces up to life in prison as a habitual offender with 3 or more prior felony convictions.
He will be sentenced March 6.
