‘Enormous amount’ of discovery for Dollar General burglary suspect
KINGMAN – Francis William Allison, who is facing more than 30 felony counts in connection with a number of alleged burglaries and robberies throughout the Kingman area, appeared for a pretrial conference before Judge Billy Sipe on Tuesday.
Defense attorney Randall Craig told the judge he is still sifting through an “enormous amount” of information. Allison’s pretrial conference was not for one case, but 10.
Craig said there is a pending plea deal from the state, but that deal can’t be contemplated until he has finished going through discovery.

Allison is also facing felony counts of armed robbery, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault and misconduct involving body armor for his alleged involvement in an armed robbery in the 7000 block of East Concho Drive on or about Jan. 1. He’s also accused of an armed robbery in the 5000 block of West Highway 68 in Golden Valley on or about June 3.
