(Stillwater, Okla) — A former Yale man who is currently serving a 20-year prison term for rape and sodomy in Pittsburg County has been given a concurrent three-year prison term by a Payne County judge for violating his probation in a 2002 assault in Yale.
Scott Arlin Thompson, 33, has been incarcerated in state prison since January, state Department of Corrections records show.
When he is released, Thompson, who will be up for parole in 2025, must register as a sex offender and serve 20 more years on probation for the 2008 rape and sodomy in Pittsburg County, court records show.
In his Payne County case, Thompson was charged with assaulting a man in Yale with a shotgun on New Year’s Eve of 2002 during an argument, court records show.
Thompson’s victim, Michael MacDonald, was struck in the head and face with the weapon, according to an affidavit by Yale Police Officer Ricky Gibson.
He had injuries to his left eye, left cheek, mouth and nose, the affidavit said. He was taken to Cushing Regional Hospital and then transferred to Hillcrest Hospital in Tulsa for surgery, the affidavit said.
Thompson, who was originally charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, pleaded guilty in 2005 to an amended charge of aggravated assault and battery, for which he was given a two-year prison term followed by three years’ probation.
After he was released from prison, Thompson was required to pay $4,421 restitution at the rate of $25 per month, which he failed to do, court records show.
Payne County Associate District Judge Stephen Kistler last week revoked his probation, ordered him to serve three years in prison in that 2002 assault and to pay restitution, court records show.
Thompson’s criminal records includes a 1996 burglary conviction from Pawnee County, for which he was given five years’ probation, DOC records show.
He was convicted in 1999 in Payne County of concealing stolen property, operating a vehicle while impaired and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, all in 1994, for which he was incarcerated less than a year, DOC records show.
