State Probation Officer On Desk Duty After Arrest

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.

    Mr. Speller, I knew God would have your back. My honest opinion is that someone set this up. Your Character is portrayed by a God fearing man, Who loves his family and that all he talks about. I didn't believe this at all, just the devil wanting to have his way, but he didnt

    In all likelihood, people accused of these crimes will be remembered for that association, regardless of what ultimately happens. It is time for a modest reform in rape jurisprudence; the accused should be granted anonymity unless and until found guilty.

    These types of situations are so disturbing. When law enforcement is your profession, it is so easy for someone to maliciously attempt to harm or take your career. I'm glad not too many people are negatively judging this officer. And I'm also happy that witn didn't plaster this story with strategically written statements. This situation is no different from the Martin county deputy that was maliciously prosecuted. I hope the accuser is prosecuted just as his accuser. My prayers are with you Allen.

    Just found out about this today. and there's no way A.S. was involved. He's a cool gentleman. These are praying days. Anyone can just accuse someone of something its' not right.

    Fraudulent charges, but don't worry, prosecutors will be charging her with filing false charges soon. Just like with the Martin County deputy.

    The American justice system can be easily manipulated, with the principle of innocent until proven guilty turned on its head.
