SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – The man who admitted to the 2007 killing of a Utah corrections officer as provided a few new revelations from behind bars.
Curtis Allgier was accused of killing a Stephen Anderson during an escape attempt. After years of wrangling in the courts, Allgier finally pleaded guilty to the crime a few weeks ago.
In a recent phone recording just released to the media, Allgier vented his frustrations.
ABC 4 learned that Allgier wasnted to change his plea, but during the phone recording, he cleared that up.
"I want this over, I want this done. Other people want this over and want it done," said Allgier. "I'm not withdrawing my plea deal."
Allgier is still mad about the way he's been treated by some people, and says despite the plea deal, he didn't do everything police say.
"I know in my heart I'm not guilty of certain things," said Allgier.
Curtis Allgier did admit to killing Anderson, but says it was an accident.
"I tried to walk out a door and other things happened," said Allgier.
During the rant, Allgier blamed a fast for the letter in which he said he wasn't going to plead the case, saying he said he simple wasn't in the right frame of mind.
Allgier's attorneys told ABC 4 News that their client wanted to release the statement so that the Anderson family could hear it.
The entire audio recording from Allgier is attached to this story. Some may find the language used by Allgier as offensive.
