Adoptive parents of Erica Parsons plead 'not guilty' to fraud charges

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

The adoptive parents of Erica Parsons have pleaded "not guilty" in federal court, a week after the couple was arrested at their home on dozens of fraud charges.

Casey and Sandy Parsons both plead not guilty to all charges Wednesday morning in federal court in Greensboro.

The Parsons were arrested at their Fayetteville home last week by federal agents and charged with 76 counts of fraud-related crimes.

Their son, Jamie Parsons, told WBTV that federal agents kicked the door in, guns drawn, when they came to serve the warrants on his parents.

He also said that over the previous two days, his mother indicated that she knew she was going to be arrested.

"Momma said she knew that they were coming. She had a feeling they were coming," Jamie said.

Erica Parsons was reported missing on July 30, 2013 by her adoptive brother, Jamie Parsons, who said she had not been seen since November 2011. She was 13 years old when she disappeared.

Casey and Sandy Parsons were released from prison last Wednesday after each was given a $25,000 unsecured bond.

Both will be held on an electronic monitoring system.
