I am sorry.
I meant B is only parallel and not C. Typo.

We're told that the suspect had three actions done to him:
- told of his right
- he could not leave
- was interrogated

Inserting a to be verb 'was' at the end does not make the sentnece run very smoothly.

Between B and C, B is the one with parallelism.

I'll take B.
