ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. — A judge has granted a continuance for the adoptive parents of missing Rowan County teenager Erica Parsons.
WSOC reported that Casey and Sandy Parsons filed motions last week to continue their case. The Parsons pleaded not guilty to more than 70 counts of federal fraud and identity theft.
They are accused of stealing government funds for accepting assistance after Erica’s disappearance.
The original trial date was set for early September, but will now be Oct. 14.
If convicted, the couple could face life in prison.
