In January of 2017, The Caroline County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Social Services- Child Protective Services Division (CPS), were notified of a child abuse allegation. The allegation made was that a JUVENILE female was being injected with Heroin by an known adult(s) as well as being coerced into performing prostitution on adult males within Caroline County.

A joint investigation was conducted between the Sheriff’s Office and CPS. Interviews were conducted with numerous witnesses by CPS and the Sheriff’s Office of potential suspects and the JUVENILE victim. During the investigation, it was confirmed that the JUVENILE victim was in fact being injected with Heroin on several occasions by Darlene Louise Allen (35 years old), and Allen’s boyfriend at the time, Paul Thomas Owen (26 years old).

Further investigation revealed that between the dates of December 17-20, 2016, Allen, Owen and the JUVENILE victim, were staying in a hotel room at the Best Western Hotel in Denton, Maryland. During those three days at the Best Western, the JUVENILE victim was coerced by Allen and Owen, into performing prostitution on adult males in the hotel room in return for money and drugs. Allen was performing prostitution in the hotel room as well. Investigation revealed that Owen, had sexual intercourse with the JUVENILE victim during that three day stay in the hotel.

On one day between the end of December 2016 and the beginning of January 2017, Allen and Owen drove the JUVENILE victim from the State of Maryland into the State of Delaware for the purposes of performing a sexual act on an elderly male in Greenwood, Delaware. Money was exchanged during that sexual encounter with the JUVENILE victim.

 

 

Through the investigation, it was learned that Lori Lynn Griffith had a level of involvement and she was charged accordingly for her participation. Griffith was served with a criminal summons on February 3, 2017.
