Ex-CNN Producer’s Wife Files For Divorce Amid Child Trafficking Charges
The wife of former CNN producer John Griffin filed for divorce after he was arrested on charges of attempting to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity.
Allyson Griffin, 46, seeks full custody of their three children and their $4.5 million mansion in Norwalk, Connecticut.
She claimed her spouse’s “arrest for various crimes has created a toxic environment.”
Allyson’s attorney John Whitcomb said she has no knowledge of her estranged husband’s untoward activity.
“Allyson, like everyone else, was stunned and horrified to hear about the charges against her estranged husband, and her heart absolutely breaks for any potential victim in this case,” Whitcomb said.
“She had absolutely no knowledge of any alleged wrongdoings. The couple has been separated for nearly two years, and Allyson has now filed for divorce. She remains focused on raising her children and serving her community.”
The longtime CNN producer, 44, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation after a federal grand jury in Vermont charged him with three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity.
If convicted, Griffin faces a sentence of 10 years to life in prison.
