Top National Homosexual Leader Arrested for Sex With Minor in Florida
A national leader of the homosexual lobby in law enforcement in Washington, D.C. has been arrested for homosexual solicitation of a minor child in Florida.
"This proves what Public Advocate, Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida legislature and all parents in Florida are fighting in Florida and throughout the nation. Adult homosexuals use their power to pervert, corrupt and assault our nation's children," says Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
(Washington DC) The city's 2019 guide to Pride called Parson a "living legend." The Department of Justice, the State Department, Amnesty International, the Southern Poverty Law Center and other police departments relied on his expertise.
Now, he was going to jail. The warrant for his arrest listed two counts of unlawful sexual activity. If convicted, he could face a prison sentence and a lifetime as a registered sex offender. Under Florida law, claiming to be misled about the age of a victim cannot be used as a legal defense.
(The 16 year old boy) met Parson on Growlr, a dating app for gay men that requires users to be 18. He'd lied about his birthday to use the app, claiming he was 18. He said he and Parson exchanged oral sex in the parking lot of a day care.
Parson, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges, did not respond to repeated interview requests.
After 20 minutes, the interview ended. It was 3:50 a.m. The boy, with his father's permission, consented to give DNA to investigators. They had everything they needed to ask a judge for an arrest warrant.
Parson sat in a jail cell for nearly a week. He paid $5,000 to A Signature Only Bail Bonds, which insured the rest of his $50,000 bond. A judge ordered him to remain in Florida, stay away from all minors and live at his parents' Boca Raton condo while he awaited trial.
Meanwhile, his mug shot had hit the news. (from Chron, per Washington Post)
Brett Parson -- the former head of MPD's L.G.B.T. Liaison Unit (LBGTLU) -- allegedly met a 16-year-old for sex after communicating on a dating app. Parson, 53, retired as head of the police liaison branch in 2020, but stayed on as a reserve officer. After learning he'd been arrested in Florida on Sunday, an MPD spokesman said the department immediately terminated him.
