Union-Bulletin Court Report

A 24-year-old man accused of failing to register as a sex offender, after attempts to contact him were unsuccessful, pleaded not guilty Monday in Walla Walla County Superior Court.

Cody G. Allan, records show, was convicted of first-degree child molestation on May 11, 2011, and was required to register his address with authorities. Police said they checked two College Place addresses reported to them. Allan was not living at one location, according to a family member, records stated. He wasn’t at the other home, police said.

His trial is scheduled for Sept. 16.

Allan has been involved in several other local cases, including a conviction for arson and reckless burning in 2017, for which he was sentenced to 208 community service hours and one year of probation.
