Assistant District Attorney Rob Davis issued the following statement on behalf of the D.A.’s office.
“After a four day trial during which a Kay County jury heard testimony from 10 witnesses, the jury found Floyed Dean Allison, Jr., guilty on eight counts of sex crimes committed against two minor victims. The District Attorney’s office thanks the 12 citizens of Kay County who served as jurors in this matter. These individuals were attentive throughout, and we believe they reached the verdict compelled by the evidence presented during the trial. The D.A.’s Office also commends the excellent investigation done by the Ponca City Police Department. PCPD spent countless hours interviewing witnesses so we could present the entire picture to this jury, and this verdict demonstrates the importance of that work. Finally, the two victims who testified in this trial showed fortitude beyond what could be expected of most adults. We could not have achieved this verdict without their willingness to be a part of the process. At the conclusion of the trial, the jury recommended Mr. Allison serve a 20 year sentence, five life sentences, and two sentences of life without the possibility of parole. We believe this recommendation reflects the severity of what these young women experienced. Formal sentencing will be held before District Court Judge Lee Turner within the next two months.”
Allison’s criminal history includes child abuse convictions in Garfield County for which he served time in the Department of Corrections.
