A former deputy with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office was sentenced to six years in prison on Oct. 7 after pleading guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child.
JCSO detectives in August 2018 were informed by a concerned resident that Toby Bryce Allison, who was 23 at the time, was allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a 13-year-old female.
Allison, according to his arrest warrant, first met the victim on Instagram. Allison initiated first contact with the victim by writing, “Hey miss, do I know you?” according to the warrant.
Allison told the victim he was 22 and she told him she was 13, according to reports.
Allison brought a pizza to the girl’s home in June and afterward visited her on multiple occasions.
During one July 2018 visit, Allison allegedly removed his shirt and laid down on a bed next to the victim after which he initiated sexual activity. The victim said she never saw nor heard from Allison after that incident, according to reports.
Allison was initially placed on administrative leave during an internal investigation and a criminal investigation conducted by JCSO and the Texas Rangers.
Detectives located the victim and her family and a forensic interview was conducted during which the victim made an outcry, according to reports.
Allison’s employment with JCSO was terminated on the morning of Aug. 24, 2018, and he was shortly after arrested at the office.
Allison pleaded guilty on Oct. 7 to aggravated sexual assault of a child and was sentenced to six years in prison.
He also pleaded guilty to indecency with a child sexual contact. On that charge, judgment was deferred and he was sentenced to 10 years probation.
