Frederick Allen, diabetic, dosed CU student with insulin and raped her, jury finds
Later, cops found what's described as a "white substance" spread on various items in the apartment, plus a note that read, "I will wash your sheets for you love, see ya Saturday!"
The author was Allen, who later told investigators that he and the student had gotten "a little intimate" but stopped when she began to get sick. He subsequently took her bedding with the intention of cleaning it, but then decided to toss it in a dumpster instead.
Inside the Sundown Saloon.
Oh yeah: He confirmed that he usually takes his insulin kit with him when he goes out.
That's a pretty damning set of facts, but Allen's trial proved to be nothing like a slam dunk, likely due to his high-powered lawyer: Pamela Mackey, best known for representing basketball star Kobe Bryant after sex-assault accusations were made against him in Colorado circa 2003. As reported by the Boulder Daily Camera, Mackey argued that the student's condition could have been caused by having too much to drink without eating properly.
The trial lasted nearly two weeks, with four days' worth of deliberation -- and earlier this week, the jury told the judge members were unable to reach unanimity on charges of assault and sex assault. He responded by encouraging them to try again, and eventually they achieved consensus.
Allen was acquitted of sexual assault with a deadly weapon, sexual assault on a physically helpless victim causing serious bodily injury and sexual assault on an impaired victim. But the jury found him guilty of sexual assault on a person incapable of appraising the nature of their conduct while armed with a deadly weapon, sexual assault on a person incapable of appraising the nature of their conduct causing serious bodily injury and first-degree assault with a deadly weapon.
