A Dawson County man last week was sentenced to 40 years in prison after a jury convicted him of child molestation and sexual battery against a child. Chaney Wayne Allen, 50, was tried in the Superior Court of Dawson County and sentenced by Judge Jason Deal to a term of 40 years, with 35 years to serve in custody and the balance on probation, according to District Attorney Lee Darragh. Darragh said Allen was convicted Aug. 9 by a jury of eight women and four men on four counts of child molestation and two counts of sexual battery against a child.
