Former DelCo Deputy Given A Year In Jail

Crime doesn’t pay – even if you’re a cop. It’s a year behind bars for a former Delaware County sheriff’s deputy, sentenced for his role in a family member’s drug dealing. 39-year-old Jerry Lee Parks had pleaded guilty in March to aiding, inducing or causing dealing in marijuana, a felony. He was arrested in September of 2017 after agreeing to hold a large amount of marijuana for his cousin. He resigned from his job not long after.
