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.
