On January 11, 2017, a Jackson County jury found Donald Allison, 49, guilty of two counts of statutory rape in the first degree, statutory sodomy in the first degree, attempted statutory rape, child molestation and furnishing pornography to a minor. 

“Thanks to the hard work of our attorneys and law enforcement officers, this dangerous individual will no longer be allowed to prey upon children,” Attorney General Josh Hawley said. “This Office is committed to protecting the weak and innocent and seeing criminals like this man punished to the fullest extent of the law.” 

Allison’s sentencing is set for February 24, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. before the Honorable Justine Del Muro of Jackson County. 

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victim and her family,” Hawley said. “While no sentence is strong enough to heal the wounds caused by these heinous crimes, the victim and her family can know that justice has been done.”  

The case was tried by Assistant Attorney General Sue Boresi.
