A state probation/parole officer is on desk duty after his arrest last month.
Allen Speller was arrested in Bertie County on June 9th for misdemeanor sexual battery and misdemeanor assault on a female. He posted a $1,000 unsecured bond.
Records show Speller's first court date on July 7th was continued until August 4th.
The Department of Correction says Speller is on office duty while they investigate his arrest. That means the probation/parole officer is not supervising offenders.
Speller has been a probation/parole officer in Beaufort and Bertie counties since 1991.
