Allen is charged with two counts of attempted production of child pornography, three counts of receipt of child pornography, and one count of access with intent to view of child pornography.
If found guilty, he faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years in prison and a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison on the production charges, a mandatory minimum of five years in prison and a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on the receipt charges, and a maximum penalty of 20 years on the access with intent to view charge.
