    He was arrested for impersonating a police officer and sodomizing a young boy (1951).

    Stayner testified that Parnell sexually abused him 'about once every two weeks' throughout his captivity.
    He introduced a pre-teen Stayner to alcohol and drugs.
    He tried (unsuccessfully) to get Stayner to join him in kidnapping other children.
    He held Steven Stayner captive for seven years, but served only five years for the crime (1981-85).

    He was molested by a border in his mother's rooming house when he was thirteen.
    When Steven Stayner died in a motorcycle accident (1989), he said he cried for the first time since he was nine.
    He was sentenced to life in prison under the 'three strikes' law (2004).
