In November of 2018, information was received by the Jail Administration of a possible inappropriate relationship between Officer Allison and a female inmate. An investigation was conducted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office immediately on receipt of this information and found it to be credible. The results of that investigation were forwarded to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. The District Attorney’s Office presented the case to the Grand Jury which resulted in this indictment. Allison was suspended upon the initial allegation and will remain on suspension until the internal investigation or criminal prosecution is complete.
