May 1, 2024

(Marietta, GA – April 26, 2024) Cobb District Attorney Flynn D. Broady Jr. announces that Allison Wean, 46, was found guilty of two counts of aggravated child molestation, two counts of aggravated sexual battery and one count of child molestation. Superior Court Judge Kellie S. Hill sentenced Allison Wean to 25 years in prison followed by life on probation.

During the investigation, it was discovered that Allison Wean groomed and sexually abused a minor under the age of 16. The victim’s mother met Wean at an event hosted by a local mom group, where the victim and the defendant’s daughter became close friends. The defendant and the victim’s mother later became co-leaders of a Girl Scout Troop. 

In 2014, the defendant's then-husband confronted her with photos showing the defendant and the victim spooning, along with messages found on the defendant's iPad exchanged between her and the young victim. The defendant and her husband divorced after the confrontation.

A Cobb County school representative reported the suspicious and inappropriate behavior to the Cobb County Police Department in December 2014. A detective with the Cobb County Police interviewed the victim’s parents, who defended Wean as a trusted family friend and declined to have their daughter forensically interviewed. The investigation was concluded. 

In 2020, the victim disclosed to a family friend that she and the defendant had been in a sexual relationship since she was 12. She was then interviewed at SafePath by a forensic interviewer.

On April 26, 2024, a 12-person Cobb County jury found Wean guilty on all counts. Superior Court Judge Kellie S. Hill sentenced her to 25 years in prison to be served, followed by life on probation.

"Every child deserves to grow up in a world free from fear and exploitation. The conviction of Allison Wean is not just a legal victory; it's a testament to the resilience of a brave survivor and the unwavering dedication of our law enforcement and legal teams," said District Attorney Flynn D. Broady Jr.

Assistant District Attorneys Kristen Judd and Alex Oberkolfer prosecuted the case on behalf of the state. The defendant was represented by Holly Michele Waltman and Clarence O. Taylor, IV.
