Former Girl Scout Leader Sentenced to 25 Years for Child Molestation

In a significant legal development, Allison Wean, a former Girl Scout troop leader from Kennesaw, Georgia, has been convicted and sentenced for her heinous crimes against a young girl. The case unfolded when Wean was found guilty on multiple counts related to child molestation.

The victim, who was only 12 years old when the abuse began, suffered at the hands of Wean for an extended period. The charges against Wean included two counts of aggravated child molestation, two counts of aggravated sexual battery, and one count of child molestation.

Cobb Superior Court Judge Kellie Hill delivered a stern sentence: 25 years in prison, followed by a lifetime of probation. Wean’s actions were not only reprehensible but also deeply damaging to the young victim.

The investigation revealed disturbing details. Wean had groomed and sexually abused the minor, who was under the age of 16, starting in 2014. Shockingly, Wean’s then-husband discovered incriminating photos of her with the victim, as well as messages exchanged between them on Wean’s iPad. The confrontation led to their divorce.

In 2014, a Cobb County school representative reported Wean’s suspicious behavior to the Cobb County Police Department. However, the victim’s parents defended Wean, considering her a trusted family friend, and declined to allow their daughter to undergo forensic interviews. Consequently, the investigation stalled.
Fast forward to 2020, when the victim bravely disclosed her traumatic experiences to a family friend. She revealed that she and Wean had been in a sexual relationship since she was 12. Subsequently, the girl was interviewed at SafePath by a forensic specialist.

The case against Wean was reopened, leading to her arrest in November 2020. After nearly four years, a 12-person jury unanimously found her guilty of molesting the young girl.
