Charge: Causing serious injury intentionally, assault and kidnapping
Sentence: 8 years
Served: Approximately 2 years

Before arriving at Wentworth, Allie was a heroin-addicted street prostitute who suffered abuse by her clients. Then Kaz Proctor found her, and insisted on taking her under her wing. Fiercely independent, Allie had no interest in being saved by anyone, but she was interested in the violent retribution the Red Right Hand was enacting. As a gay woman, Allie found solace being with women and emotional respite from a lifestyle she couldn’t escape. Kaz let Allie live with her, and together, they attacked the various Johns who had assaulted Allie over the years. Having somewhere to sleep every night, and a purpose during the day, helped ease Allie’s drug dependency.

In series 4, Allie found calmness from her relationship with Bea, and a love she hadn’t experienced before. When Ferguson nearly succeeded in killing Allie, resulting in Bea effectively committing suicide, she lost herself in drugs once again, until an unlikely collaborator in Series 5 helped her find a motivation to live again.
