A NEW TRIAL FOR SCOTT D. ALLEN

Scott D. Allen was arrested in 1999 and then sentenced to death for the murder of Christopher G. in 2003. Since then he has been incarcerated on death row in North Carolina, Central Prison. Scott has always maintained he is innocent, but all appeals for a new trial have been denied.

There is no forensic evidence for Scott's guilt and the eyewitness statement the State's case was built on can be shown to be entirely fabricated. Crucial evidence, like a bloody knife found at the scene, was mishandled, ignored or even lost by the police. Neither police nor prosecution doubted the main

witness or followed up on other leads for the case – despite many opportunities to do so. Scott's trial lawyer failed to point out many of the issues to the jury. For these reasons we demand that Scott is granted a new trial.

On this page you can get to know Scott, learn all about his case and find quick & easy ways to support us (for which we would be very thankful).
