George Allen Jr.
“I join with Congressman Lacy Clay in calling on Attorney General Koster to do the right thing and drop this appeal.”
A 56-year-old, partially blind schizophrenic man who has been imprisoned for three decades could be freed in a hearing Wednesday, after a Missouri judge recently overturned his rape and murder convictions, lawyers said.
A judge last week overturned Allen’s 1983 conviction for the murder and rape of a St. Louis woman, citing DNA and other evidence that called the conviction into question.
A judge last week overturned the conviction of George Allen Jr. who is 29 years into a 95-year sentence for killing a St. Louis woman in 1982.
Lacy Clay says George Allen Jr. should be released without further delay.
The two said they want Attorney General Koster to consider releasing George Allen Jr. who was sentenced to 95 years in prison in the 1982 death of Mary Bell.
