Jury selection for Sandy Parsons to begin Thursday

Channel 9 uncovered new details expected in the trial of a missing Rowan County teenager’s father.

Jury selection for Sandy Parsons begins Thursday.

Prosecutors have listed 11 possible witnesses, including F.B.I. investigators, Department of Social Services workers and two Parsons family members.

The defense list is much shorter and only includes Sandy, his daughter, mother-in-law and one D.S.S. worker.

Prosecutors said Sandy and his wife Casey took benefits by claiming their adoptive daughter Erica lived with them, even after she disappeared.

Earlier this month, Casey Parsons pleaded guilty to 15 counts of federal fraud. She could be sentenced to up to 200 years in prison.

Erica Parsons disappeared in November 2011, but no one reported her missing until last year.

The Parsons said they thought Erica was living a grandmother in Asheville. Investigators say that grandmother never existed.

Charlotte couple arrested, accused of making fake credit cards for criminals

Investigators discovered a website designed to make fake credit cards for criminals who stole personal information. Now two local people are facing charges.

Victor Morris and Lakisha Bryant are accused of having hundreds of fake credit and debit cards.

“It's the technology,” Charlotte resident Stephen Gill said. “That's what it comes down to”

According to the indictment, from October 2012 through February 2013, Morris and Bryant received "approximately 209 counterfeit credit cards and counterfeit debit cards" from a website run in Florida called "Fakeplastic.” According to investigators, the site sold the cards to "members-only customers."

Getting a membership wasn't easy. It required sponsorship, from someone already in the fake credit card business, according to the indictment.

“It's probably just going to get even better for those people to get things done like that,” Gill said. “And unfortunately, we have to pay the price for that."

Investigators believe the Charlotte pair received the cards through U.S. mail. And that's where innocent people become victims. The indictment says the couple would take stolen credit card information and put it on their new fake cards. Then they could use the cards at stores. In December 2012 investigators say the pair "possessed over 40 unused gift cards," valued at around $12,000.

Morris and Bryant are facing mail, wire and bank fraud charges.
