A man in Coeymans – just south of Albany – is competing for Vanguard’s title as the biggest perv in the Capital Region.
John Allen, 61, a top-ranking official in the state’s Office of Mental Health, was arrested Wednesday by Coeymans town police on charges connected to the alleged exploitation of two children – aged 12 and 13.
Allen, 61, is a special assistant to Mental Health Commissioner Ann M. Sullivan.
As of the last report, Allen is being held on $10,000 bail at the Albany County jail on 29 counts of child endangerment, a misdemeanor.
Allen was reportedly earning $132,054.
