George Allen: Missouri Attorney General Opposes Justice for George Allen


Missouri Attorney General Opposes Justice for George Allen George Allen has served 30 years for a 1982 murder and rape in St. Louis, Missouri. Allen, who is schizophrenic, was originally arrested because police mistook him for a convicted sex offender who was a suspect in the case. Rather than let Allen go, they interrogated him anyway, eventually obtaining a confession that even one of the interrogating officers now admits he has doubts about.

The Innocence Project and attorneys from Bryan Cave LLP have discovered serology evidence that semen recovered from the robe that the victim was wearing when she was attacked didn’t match the defendant or the victim’s known sexual partners.

Rather than let Allen go, they interrogated him anyway, eventually obtaining a confession that even one of the interrogating officers now admits he has doubts about. The Innocence Project and attorneys from Bryan Cave LLP have discovered serology evidence that semen recovered from the robe that the victim was wearing when she was attacked didn’t match the defendant or the victim’s known sexual partners. DNA testing has proven that other semen at the scene, which was attributed to Allen at trial, was actually from the victim’s boyfriend. Lawyers also recently discovered evidence never turned over to the defense excluding Allen and the victim’s boyfriend as the source of fingerprints or blood evidence that was recovered at the scene. Despite this and other evidence pointing to Allen’s innocence, most of which was concealed from his lawyers, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is standing by the conviction and has opposed our efforts to overturn Allen’s conviction. The case is now before a Missouri judge who will hopefully conclude that the large volume of evidence pointing to Allen’s innocence coupled with the multiple constitutional violations demand that Allen’s conviction be overturned. proven that other semen at the scene, which was attributed to Allen at trial, was actually from the victim’s boyfriend.
