GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A Bay City man who possessed and accessed, with intent to view, child pornography involving prepubescent minors or minors under the age of 12 was sentenced on April 9th, 2021, to 12 years in federal prison.

Brandon Scott Parsons, 28-years-old, of Bay City, was also sentenced to five years of supervised release by United States District Judge Thomas L. Ludington. Parsons pleaded guilty on December 23rd, 2020.

“This sentence should serve as a warning for those who target and prey on children,” said Acting United States Attorney Saima Mohsin. “The aggressive investigation and prosecution of child predators remains among the highest priorities for our office.”

According to court documents, on July 16th, 2019, Parsons distributed eight images containing child pornography on social media platforms. A search warrant conducted on March 23rd, 2020, revealed an additional five images containing child pornography on an SD card in Parsons’s cellphone. The images involved minors under the age of 12 or prepubescent, and bondage and bestiality scenes. Parsons had been previously convicted on February 17th, 2015, of felony possession of child sexually abusive material and felony use of computers to commit a crime, in the 18th Judicial Circuit Court in Bay County.

The case was investigated by HSI. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Anca Pop.
