A Wapello County supervisor whose plea-bargain to gambling charges Monday wrapped up a state investigation says the spotlight’s shining too brightly on him. The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation held a news conference at the Law Enforcement Center. Following that news conference, Supervisor Jerry Parker said he felt he was singled out. He says “probably half a dozen agents” had search warrants for other homes and offices and interviewed many people but singled him out. Parker says they proposed that he plead guilty and they’d drop charges against the others in the investigation. Parker says some were betting large sums of money on the computer.
