Colton Man Sentenced to Over 9 Years in Prison for Raping & Beating his Girlfriend

COLTON – A Colton man was sentenced to 9 years and four months in prison for the rape and beating of his girlfriend officials said.

Jeremy Allen, 31, was dating his girlfriend for around three years at the time of the August 2017 incident. The couple had a history of domestic violence prior to the incident. District attorney’s officials said that Allen was homeless and the couple at times would sleep in his vehicle in the Lytle Creek area. On the day of the incident, the two drove his Jeep into the area near the 15 freeway in the City of Fontana.

“While they were seated in the Jeep, the defendant started getting angry at the victim for no apparent reason and then slapped her in the face three times,” Mann said. “He then ordered her into the back of the Jeep, threatening to harm her if she didn’t do what he said. The victim compiled because she was scared of him and had nowhere to go.” The terrified victim was able to call 911 without the suspect knowing, leading to the vehicle being located and the victim being rescued.

Allen was convicted of Domestic Violence and one count of Forcible Rape. Prior to the sentencing, Victim Advocate Kesica Middleton read a victim impact statement on behalf of the victim in this case (excerpted):

“Yes, all my bruises will heal, the bloody noses have stopped bleeding. The bloody lip from when he bit me, yes, bit me, has healed. My eyes have healed. My eyes were sore and red.I couldn’t stand to see light for a week. Why, because he hit me in my eyes and then poured hot sauce in my eyes. … I still must live with this today. I find myself looking over my shoulder, that fear is still instilled in me.”
