It’s rare to see any high profile case without seeing Gloria Allred‘s name attached somewhere.
So it’s no surprise that Allred has surfaced in the Jaycee Lee Dugard case.
Allred is repping Jaycee’s biological dad, Ken Slayton.
Allred tells RadarOnline.com, “I can confirm that I’m representing Ken Slayton. I have no further comment.”

It is unclear exactly why Ken Slayton hired a lawyer to represent him. When asked by RadarOnline.com if Slayton has been offered movie and book deals Allred said, “No comment.”
Ken Slayton has not been involved in Jaycee Lee’s life, she was raised by her step father, Carl Probyn, who witnessed Jaycee being snatched on that fateful day 18 years ago. Carl was even briefly treated as a suspect before being fully cleared.
Probyn and Jaycee’s mom, Terry, have since divorced, blaming the pressures of losing a daughter to kidnap as a motivating factor. But Carl and his family have remained close to Terry, and Carl was even acting as an unofficial family spokesperson when Jaycee reappeared into their lives.
Jaycee, her two children, Starlit and Angel, and her mom remain at a safe house in an undisclosed location. As of yet Jaycee nor her mother have spoken with the press.
