On Nov. 14, the Sheriff’s Office said Allen was indicted on charges of statutory sex offense with a child by an adult, indecent liberties with a child, and sexual activity with a student. A few days later, on Nov. 17, Allen was reportedly arrested on those charges.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, he will be transported from the Lee County Jail to Central Prison in Raleigh, North Carolina. Allen’s bond was set at $250,000.
The Sheriff’s Office asked any parents who had students who were taught by Allen to speak with their children about possible inappropriate conduct.
Lee County schools reportedly put out a statement that said, "We understand that there will be many questions and that our community will need time and support in order to process and respond to this terrible situation."
