LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The District Attorney has extended a plea offer to the maximum legal sentence for the young woman accused of fatally stabbing her boyfriend, Marcus Postell, in November of 2016.
District Attorney Greg McCaffrey offered Danielle Allen, 22, a guilty plea to Manslaughter in the Second Degree, which is the only crime with which she is charged, and the maximum, an indeterminate sentence of 5 to 15 years in state prison.
She is currently scheduled to take the case to trial.
Allen is represented by Cheryl Myers-Buth and Joel Daniels, both of whom are highly respected Buffalo criminal defense attorneys.
There have been hearings to determine what evidence, if any, will be withheld from the jury at the potential trial.
Allen’s father, Major Rick Allen of State Police Troop E, has attended every court appearance in this case, as has the family of Postell.
