Allen was arrested Oct. 23 after an anonymous tip led Glendale police to the girls, who are his nieces by marriage. The girls are sisters.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Philip Wojdak brought in an expert witness to testify about the behavioral patterns of sexual abuse victims as well as Allen’s nieces who testified about the sexual abuse that they allegedly suffered.
In Wojdak’s closing arguments, he told jurors to “Do justice.”
Father Joseph Shea, who belonged to Holy Family Catholic Church in Glendale, Allen’s wife and other people were called to testify for the defense.
Samantha Briones testified Allen had a good reputation at the church, where he volunteered.
Allen’s attorney Dana Cole tried to show inconsistencies in the girls’ testimonies throughout the trial.
“[The 16-year-old girl] is not being straight with you folks,” he told jurors on Thursday during his closing arguments.
Cole questioned why the girls continued to go to Allen’s home if they knew that they would be sexually abused.
“I hate to be crude and rude, but they were asking for more,” Cole told jurors. “No kid would do that.”
Two counts alleging Allen had molested his 14-year-old niece on two separate occasions not previously mentioned until trial were added onto his charges.
The girls testified this week that Allen performed sexual acts on them and that they did the same to him.
The younger sister testified Allen had molested her since she was 5 and the older sister said he had sexual abused her since she was 7.
Both girls testified that Allen showed them pornography on his computer.
The older sister alleged that she was sexually abused twice in the projection room at Glendale Adventist Medical Hospital when Allen was volunteering there for volleyball events, she testified.
On Thursday, Shea testified that only one volleyball event had occurred at the hospital. He also said the event was heavily guarded with security and that the projection room was, in fact, a booth.
Shea’s testimony proves that the older sister could not have made up the sexual abuse allegations at the hospital because she and Shea knew about the same event, Wojdak told jurors.
He contended that girls made mistakes about what they recalled from the sexual abuse incidents.
“People do make mistakes about what they remember,” Wojdak told jurors. “They remember it differently from one day to a next.”
Jurors will continue deliberations Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
