A former veteran Chicago Police officer was sentenced to four years of “sex offender” probation Thursday after he admitted to molesting a girl nearly a decade ago and then similarly attacking her 3-year-old daughter last year.
Allen Hall, 61, pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to Stephen Campbell, a spokesman with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Hall forced his first victim to perform a sexual act on him while he was in his bed at his Austin home when she was 13, prosecutors said at the time of his arrest in late 2013.
The girl told her mother what had happened, but authorities were never contacted at the time of the incident, which took place in either 2005 or 2006.
During the next few years, Allen also fondled the girl in exchange for gifts, prosecutors said.
Then, in October 2013, Allen molested his victim’s toddler after he drove them to a currency exchange in the 5100 block of West Madison.
When the older victim, now in her early 20s, went inside to make a purchase, Allen made the then 3-year-old fondled him, prosecutors said.
The child’s mother noticed that the little girl’s demeanor had changed and that she was seated in the front of the car — not in the back passenger seat where she was before.
The girl later told her mother that Hall made her fondle him, prosecutors said.
Hall — a 19-year veteran who last worked the desk in the 14th District — is related to both victims.
Another victim of Hall’s also came forward in 2011 but authorities were barred from prosecuting him in that case because the incidents took place between 1986 and 1992, which exceeded the statute of limitations, prosecutors said.
According to a police report, Hall’s third alleged victim, now in her mid 30s, said he touched her inappropriately when she was between 8 and 10 years old.
Hall, of the 200 block of North Menard, was relieved of his police powers and placed on administrative duties at the time of his arrest.
He retired on Oct. 31st, according to a Chicago Police spokesman.
