Allen wrote that he is "throw(ing) (himself) at the mercy of the court," adding, "I am begging to be provided with legal assistance in a public defender or whatever help is available."
The letter states that Allen indicated at an Oct. 28 initial hearing that he would hire private counsel. It adds, "However, at the time I had no clue how expensive it would be just to talk to someone."
It goes on to mention specifics about his and his wife's financial situation and fear for safety following his recent arrest.
