March 9, 2020


3 A NURSE WHO LET A DISABLED TEENAGER STARVE TO DEATH LEARNS HER PUNISHMENT TODAY. MOLLIE PARSONS WAS HIRED TO CARE FOR 14 YEAR-OLD MAKAYLA NORMAN.. WHO HAD CEREBAL PALSY. BUT THE CHILD WEIGHED JUST 28 POUNDS WHEN SHE DIED IN MARCH OF 2011. MEGAN O’ROURKE WAS IN THE COURTROOM TODAY AND IS LIVE WITH THE VERY LATEST IN THE SENTENCING. 3 MOLLIE PARSONS DIDN’T SAY ANYTHING IN COURT THIS AFTERNOON, EXCEPT “GUILTY” BUT, JUDGE MARY KATHERINE HUFFMAN DIDN’T HOLD BACK. LISTEN TO WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY ABOUT SOME OF THE PHOTO EVIDENCE IN THIS CASE, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PRESENTED IN COURT, HAD PARSON’S TRIAL GONE FORWARD. 7:56:35 I COULDN’T BEGIN TO DESCRIBE TO SOMEBODY WHAT I SAW. THAT POOR CHILD LOOKED WORSE THAN ANY CONCENTRATION CAMP VICTIM I HAVE EVER SEEN IN ANY PHOTO I HAVE EVER SEEN” 51 JUDGE HUFFMAN WENT ON TO SAY SHE THINKS THIS CASE IS A QUOTE “TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE”…BECAUSE THERE WASN’T ANYTHING MORE SERIOUS THAT PARSONS COULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH. THE 42 YEAR-OLD FORMER NURSE PLEADED GUILTY TO FAILURE TO CARE FOR A FUNCTIONALY IMPAIRED PERSON, INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER, AND TAMPERING WITH RECORDS. HUFFMAN SENTENCED PARSONS TO THE MAXIMUM TEN YEARS. AFTER COURT, I TALKED TO PROSECUTORS ABOUT THE CASE…AND THEY SAY THEY WERE PLEASED WITH THE MAXIMUM SENTENCE, GIVEN THE CIRUMSTANCES. 8:06:05 “SHE WAS PAID TO CARE FOR THIS CHILD, 5 TO 6 DAYS A WEEK, 8 HOURS A DAY…AND SHE PRBABLY WASN’T SHOWING UP MOST OF THE TIME, AND IF SHE WAS, THEN SHE WAS IGNORING THE CLEAR NEGLECT THAT THIS CHILD WAS FACING AT THE CHANDS OF THIS CHILD’S MOTHER AND UNFORTUANTELY THIS CHILD DIDN’T HAVE THE ABILITY TO SPEAK OR LET ANYONE KNOW THAT SHE WAS STARVING AND THAT SHE WAS ROTTING TO DEATH” 26 PARSON’S HAS ALREADY SERVED ONE YEAR OF THAT TEN YEAR SENTENCE. BUT, THERE IS A SEPERATE FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO MEDICAID FRAUD THAT I AM TOLD IS STILL ONGOING. REPORTING LIVE, MEGAN O’ROURKE
