Bill Allen’s lawyers submitted a report with his pre-sentencing memorandum stating that a test given in August of this year showed a full-scale IQ score of 82. This result places him in the bottom portion of the “Low Average” range. Well under 15 percent of all American adults have a score as low as 82. The range below “Low Average” starts at a score of 79 and is called “Borderline Retardation.”
Allen of course suffered a brain injury from a motorcycle accident in 2001 from which he has “improved only moderately,” according to a psychiatrist.
Since that brain injury, Allen has:
· served as Chairman of VECO, a company whose annual revenues reached a billion dollars;
· traveled and vacationed one-on-one repeatedly with then-U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee and one of the country’s handful of most powerful people; and
· served as the political arm of the major oil companies in Alaska politics.
