Casper Man Pleads Guilty to Glenrock Abduction

By: K2 News Desk,

A Casper man has pleaded guilty to kidnapping and sexually abusing a minor in the abduction of a 2year old Glenrock girl from last year. 22 yearold Robert J. Parks entered the pleas Wednesday in Converse county district court. Parks had been scheduled for trial starting Tuesday in Douglas. Parks entered alford pleas, which carry the same legal weight as regular guilty pleas but don't require a defendant to admit wrong-doing. Parks faces sentences of up to 20 years for kidnapping and 50 years for sexual abuse of a minor. His lawyer, Scott Powers, says prosecutors agreed to drop a felony larceny charge against parks in exchange for his pleas. Powers says prosecutors agreed to allow Parks' sentences to run concurrently.
