Former Councilman Pleads No Contest To Felony Charge

A for­mer Wauseon City Coun­cil­man pleaded no con­test Tues­day to a felony count of theft in office for steal­ing county prop­erty while he was Ful­ton County’s inspec­tor of weights and mea­sures.

62 year old Fred Allen allegedly stole unspec­i­fied “prop­erty or ser­vices” owned by the county.

Allen was a mem­ber of Wauseon City Coun­cil and assis­tant fire chief for the vol­un­teer fire depart­ment there at the time of his indict­ment back in June. He has since resigned his coun­cil seat. Due to the felony charge, he may not run for office again.
