EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Will D. Allen – Pleads for Shorten Prison Sentence over His Role in Massive Ponzi Scheme
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Ex-NFL star Will D. Allen is pleading with a judge to not to throw the book at him during his upcoming sentencing – for his role in a massive Ponzi scheme that defrauded other pro athletes – saying he has suffered enough, pointing out he’s currently living in a hotel with his family.
Allen and his business partner, Susan Daub, were charged with securities fraud for their massive Ponzi scheme that screwed over investors and other pro athletes … where they forged documents and took investors money for themselves.
Prosecutors argued that Allen personally received over $4 million dollars from the scheme.
Allen and his business partner reached a deal with prosecutors and plead guilty last month on charges of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering and will be sentenced early next year. He is out on bail until his sentencing.
Then recently, Allen headed to court to plea with the judge to not throw the book at him and only sentence him to 30 months in prison NOT the 57 months requested by the prosecution. He argues he has already suffered significant consequences for his role in the scheme …. including losing his home and having to move into a hotel with his 3 kids and wife.
Allen points out he has no prior criminal history and a shorter sentence will allow him to successfully pay the restitution he is ordered to pay to the victims. He even states he’s heartbroken because his son is about to graduate High School and was accepted into Columbia University … and is pleading with the judge to allow him to attend the graduation ceremony prior to checking into prison.
