Dallas Man Sentenced in Online Exploitation Case

Plea agreement led to 42-year-old Tracy Scott Parrott being sentenced to 10 years over 2009 incident.

A Dallas man was convicted Tuesday of possessing and trying to distribute pictures and videos of children in sex acts.

In a plea agreement with the state, Tracy Scott Parrott, 42, pleaded guilty to five counts of sexual exploitation of children. 

He was sentenced to 10 years in prison, with three years in confinement and the remainder on probation.

Detectives with the served a search warrant at Parrott’s residence on Dec. 4, 2009, a news release said. CAC Detective Lenny Carr had been monitoring Parrott’s online activities on his undercover computer.

Carr observed Parrott to be online possessing child sexual abuse images and videos and making those images and videos available for distribution. The search warrant was served while Parrott’s computer was still in communication with the detective’s undercover computer. Several videos were discovered on his computer of children believed to be as young as 5 years old in various sex acts with adults.

The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office is a cooperative member of the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC).

“The types of cases investigated by this unit can become emotionally draining on the detectives,” CAC Lt. Starry Kilgore said in Wednesday's release. “We have made a commitment within ourselves to strive for the safety of our children that are not able to protect themselves."

You have got to be kidding me. Deborah.......we don't have to "judge". A panel of his peers did that and decided he was a scummy pedophile and needs to be behind bars, Its just to bad its not for LIFE. And I can't believe you expect people to be more compassionate towards a child molester. EWWWWWW!! Hope he gets what he deserves. And what a better place than prison. Again, to bad its not for life!!

Deborah: I don’t wanna walk in his shoes, those shoes might have filthy goo in them. EEEEW! At 42 years old he can not blame on his childhood his dirty acts against children. If he was touched “in the wrong places” then maybe his mother should have protected him, but in any case he is now an adult at 42 and MUST take responsibility. I must reiterate previous comments! He should have NO contact with ANY kids EVER, even his own. The question is what nightmares is he could still be making for children today. I’ll be watching the sexual predators database online to make sure he doesn’t move into my neighborhood! This pervert is a self-confessed child predator. I am so glad he's been put where be belongs and he can not prey on other children! Poor Anna! I am so very sorry you had to live through that monster you have for a father. His child pornography must have impacted you. I feel so very sad for you. He may have never layed a hand on you or your brother (and how do you know he didn’t exploit your brother and you not know anything about it?) He worked hard alright, at making child porn pics and movies for selling them on the internet. What he had to go through? How about what everyone had to go through? Many people had it tough as a child and they never starting molesting children! What a big excuse that is. Excuses, and, more, excuses. He is still behind bars in state prison I see online and thank GOD for that.

Let's keep in mind that Anna is this man's daughter. No matter what he's done, no matter what we all think of him, or how he is judged in court. He has a family. He has children of his own. They know him differently (we hope) that what is explained here. They have a right to feel sad, betrayed, or angry. They also have a right to love their father. This is a very confusing and stressful time for this family, I'm sure. His children - no matter how old they are - are suffering for this. We cannot morally degrade this man in front of his children like this. We are not his judge. That is for the court system.

My prayer for you and your family and all people that out there was affected. You did not do anything wrong, God will protect you and help in this dificult moments.

Tracy has a lot to answer for in this life but he never laid a hand on either one of his children. I dont condone his activities or his life choices but ya'll need to realize that everything you say on this or other similar websites do not effect Tracy in the least, it only brings shame and humiliation on his family and children. Remember that when you are cursing and beating your chests. I firmly believe that there is not excuse for his behavior but I also know that he was not like that during our marriage. He has faced judgement in the courts and he will face judgement when he stands before God but I implore you to leave my children out of this so that we can pick up the tattered remains of our lives and move past this.
