Bluffs Man Charged With 1st Degree Sexual Assault of Minor and Weapons Charge

Bluffs Man Charged With 1st Degree Sexual Assault of Minor and Weapons Charge

An early Friday morning traffic stop in Scottsbluff lands a 20-year-old Bluffs man behind bars and facing several felony charges.

Court documents say Jason Allen was arrested in the early hours of June 19th after police received a call about a driver following them. When officers made contact with Allen, he was in the car with a 13-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl.

Officers searched Allen and found a loaded 9mm handgun, which was reported stolen out of Bayard. On his phone, police saw the home screen photo of a male and female lying in a bed partially covered in a sheet.

Allen told the officer that the picture was him and his girlfriend, but denied that the female in the picture was the 15-year-old girl.  The 15-year-old female told the officer she and Allen had been in a relationship for approximately two months and they have had sex.

Allen was taken into custody and is now facing charges including:

  • 1st Degree Sexual Assault of a Minor- Class 2 Felony
  • Possession of a Stolen Firearm- Class 2A Felony
  •   Carrying a Concealed Weapon (1st Offense) – Class I Misdemeanor

Allen was arraigned on the charges on Monday in Scotts Bluff County Court. Bond has been set at $70,000 at ten percent, and he’s scheduled to be back in court on June 30th for his preliminary hearing.
