Man convicted of killing mother gets 6 months for exposing self in adult bookstore

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — A Waterville man who spent nearly 20 years behind bars for killing his mother has been sent back to prison for approaching a worker at an adult bookstore wearing just sneakers and socks.

Scott Thompson was sentenced Tuesday to six months on an indecent conduct charge and ordered to serve it after finishing a three-year sentence for an earlier burglary charge. He was free on probation on the burglary conviction when he exposed himself at the First Amendment Adult Store in Waterville in September.

Prosecutors say the 41-year-old Thompson is dangerous.

The Morning Sentinel reported that Thompson’s attorney says his client “overstepped his license.”

Thompson was convicted in April 1991 of killing his 59-year-old mother, Edith Thompson, in 1989 when he was 17. He was released in December 2008.
