Woman charged with selling crack to cop

(Continued)

Phone and email messages left for the organization yesterday were not returned.

Judge Matthew Machera set bail at $5,000 for Allison, a mother of five, yesterday. It was not clear whether she would be able to make that amount of bail. Her attorney said the most she could have posted immediately was $1,000.

Allison pleaded not guilty to the two charges.

A pretrial hearing is set for Jan. 27.

In 1989, when Allison was 14, she was accidentally shot in the leg while hanging around with friends on a playground inside the Franklin Hill housing project in Dorchester, according to news accounts of the incident. Allison was not the intended target of the bullet. During her recovery, she was visited by and posed for photos with then-Mayor Ray Flynn.
