Eau Claire rapist David Alliet was granted parole on a 1st degree sexual assault with a weapon conviction from 1999. His victim was a college student who was just walking down the street.
Alliet snatched a University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student off the street and raped her in a horrific stranger attack that left the victim scarred for life. He is a registered sex offender.
