Woman Convicted of Poisoning Children Released in Brampton


Police are issuing a public safety advisory as a woman will be released from custody in Brampton today after having poisoned several children.

According to Peel Regional Police, Christine Allen, 36, will reside in the area of Charolais Boulevard in Brampton upon statutory release from custody today, Monday, July 24, 2017.

Allen was convicted of four counts of administering a noxious substance to cause bodily harm. More specifically, Allen deliberately poisoned four children in her care. 

All of the young victims were ill, and serious harm was done to one.

The decision for her release was made based on information from Correctional Service Canada with careful review of issues of public safety.

Allen is, however, at an elevated risk to re-offend, according to police.
