Florence mother pleads guilty to second degree rape

LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Dana Allen pleaded guilty before a Lauderdale County court Thursday to second degree rape.

Allen was charged with one count of rape for sex with a 14-year-old boy. She was arrested in January after officials received tips from parents.

Allen admitted to having sex with multiple teenagers, but only one was under the age of 16 which is the age of consent in Alabama. 

Officials said Allen volunteered with the junior high basketball team, but was not serving in that capacity or any other role with Wilson School during the time these incidents happened.

Allen's plea deal came with a recommended sentence of 36 months. She will also have to register as a sex offender.

"She will have to register as a sex offender and that's a big ticket item obviously because that's a life sentence," said Chris Conolly, Lauderdale County District Attorney. "That's the community notification; that's quarterly registration; that's restrictions about employment and where she can live so that's a huge part of this agreement."

Her sentencing date will be July 26 at 1:30 p.m.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
