NEWKIRK — Samantha Jeanne Allison, 39, appeared in Kay County District Court Friday on felony charges of child neglect and enabling child sex abuse. She is also facing a misdemeanor count of failure to report child abuse.
She was arrested by Blackwell police Lt. John Mitchell on April 22. Authorities report in the affidavit that Allison’s ex-husband, Floyd Dean Allison Jr., 36, is accused of abusing three children in the home. One of the alleged victims told police that Samantha was made aware of the abuse. Ponca City police Det. Sgt. Josh Henderson reports he interviewed Samantha on Feb. 4 about the allegations
In the interview she reportedly stated that she once caught Floyd with his hand on another family’s member’s breast and “flipped out.” Police report she also admitted to catching him naked on the couch with the alleged victims and “flipped out every time.”
“I think it actually happened three times,” she reportedly said. ‘Once when we lived on Dover and twice when we lived on Chestnut. The whole time I was like, ‘You’re a child molester.’ My gut was telling me he was a child molester and I actually got the kids in the car to go file a protective order but I decided not to because I didn’t have substantiating evidence.” She reportedly told the officer that in July of 2016 she was notified by police that Floyd was dealing dope out of their home.
“He promised he would quit and stop doing drugs,” she said. “I decided to let him stay and that lasted until September of 2016 when he tested positive for meth. He tried to tell me that someone put meth in his drink and that is when I decided to get a protective order against him.” She reportedly told police that after she obtained the protective order, she let him come to the home and spend the night at least five times.
Police located the petition for a protective order filed on Sept. 20, 2016 and an application for dismissal of the order filed on Sept. 26, 2017.
A warrant for Floyd’s arrest is issued with bond endorsed at $500,000. In that case he was charged on Aug. 27, 2018 with three felony counts of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16.
His criminal history in Kay County includes domestic abuse and firearms violations. Anyone with information on his location is asked to contact law enforcement. Samantha is free on $50,000 bond.
