Prosecutor Mike Allen Announces Extramarital Affair

Hamilton County prosecutor Mike Allen announced in a press conference Wednesday afternoon that he engaged in an extramarital affair with a female lawyer from the Prosecutor's office for four years. The relationship lasted from December 1999 through August 2003.

The affair, Allen says, would have been made public through pending litigation. The prosecutor and former judge said he will continue to do the best that he can in his job and he wants to work hard to gain his family's respect. He also stated that he still has much to give to the community and will not be resigning.
