Early Struggles - Allen Ezail Iverson was born in Hampton, Virginia, on June 7, 1975, to Ann Iverson, a 15-year-old single parent. At 17, Iverson was convicted as an adult of the felony charge of maiming by mob for hitting a woman in the head with a chair during a neighborhood brawl (Iverson maintained his innocence). After serving four months in a correctional facility, he was granted clemency by Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder and the conviction was overturned in 1995 for insufficient evidence.
