"In the late 1930s the edges of Forrester's huge prostitution ring began to crumble as well. By 1940 she was in jail, some say because of Allen's testimony, which by the way, was just not so. That was left to the testimony of at least three other people connected to Forrester in one fashion or the other, Donna Stewart, Joan Farrell, and Pauline Skevenski, but not Allen."
"Allen, going by the name Brenda Allen Burns, was called to testify that Forrester had in fact 'did' the above relative to Allen being associated with Forrester. Allen was straightforward in stating that Forrester was in no way responsible in any fashion so cited by the statute. Because the 'girls' that worked for Forrester liked the way Allen conducted herself, by neither incriminating others or throwing Forrester under the bus, she was elevated to such a status that she quickly established herself into a leadership position."
