Winfield, WV-In a very dismal amd somewhat confusing case out of West Virginia a mother Mima Jane Parsons (42)

was arrested last week for allegations associated with the sexual abuse involving a now 14-year-old child in her home. Mrs. Parsons was charged with allowing the abuse of the minor to continue and failing to act to stop the abuse. The alleged victim in the case was reportedly abused from ages 5 to 12. The perpertrator of the abuse, was Parson’s husband Ray Eugene Parsons (41). He was arrested back on February 29, 2008 on ONLY 2 counts of sexual abuse and admitted to the crimes. I don’t get that, I am far from a law student or anything-but shouldn’t Ray Parsons be facing more charges than just two counts if this victim was molested and went thru 7 long years of hell? I’m just saying, it isn’t that hard to add things up and we all know full well he didn’t just abuse this girl 2 times. This isn’t right.

Another thing that turned my stomach was when the victim got up the courage to finally TELL her mother about the abuse-did mother comfort her, wrapping her in a warm protective embrace? Not even close. When the Mima was told about the abuse by her child, she bitterly called the girl “a slut.” Geez, the support for this girl was overwhelmingly absent from the very person that should have wanted to go tear this man’s eyes right out of his face ! No wonder abuse victims don’t tell if this is the response some of them will face.

Thank God for the guidance counselor at the girl’s school-whom she confided in, if it weren’t for this person, she would probably still be being abused in the home. Now she has been removed from the home and can hopefully begin her journey to healing and a chance at a normal life.

*Disturbing : A third person has been arrested and charged with abuse in this case. Read more from WOWK-channel 13 News.
