(BEDFORD) - Oolitic Deputy Marshal Bill Allen who is accused of three counts of child molesting will appear in Superior Court II on August 27 at 1 p.m. for a possible change of plea hearing.

According to court records, Allen's attorney Stacey Uliana filed a verified motion for change of plea on August 12.

Prosecutor Stanley Levco, who is presenting the case for the state, is anticipated to file a Level 2 felony charge of dissemination of matter harmful to a minor against Allen which he will plead guilty to. The other felony charges of having sexual intercourse, performing sexual deviate conduct and fondling a then 13-year-old girl will be dropped as part of the plea agreement.

Allen's jury trial previously scheduled in Superior Court I for September 22 was ordered vacated.

Allen turned himself in on November 24, 2014 after a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was booked into the Lawrence County jail and then released after posting 10 percent ($10,000) of a $100,000 bond.

Allen has been suspended from duty with pay pending the results of the criminal investigation.

Allen is accused of molesting a then 13-year-old girl between March 2008 and May 2012. In the past Allen has denied those allegations.

According to the girl the abuse started when she was about 10 and happened in a home in Lawrence County.

According to the affidavit, the girl said "she had learned about sex in a health class at school and she told Allen she did not want to do 'this' anymore."
