You Don't See This Every Day, Part 2

The jury came back with a verdict of Guilty on the False Report of Child Abuse/Neglect and Not Guilty on the charge of Stalking (which encompasses a course of conduct designed to harrass another person).

Judge Shea sentenced Thomson to 3 years CONSECUTIVE to the other case, ordered NO CONTACT with Ms. Latham, and ordered restitution be paid to the State for expenses incurred to prosecute the case.

Kudos to Judge Shea for making the sentence consecutive rather than concurrent to the other case (the maximum possible for the charge was 5 years). I hope that Mr. Thomson gets the message that he's in the Department of Corrections because of HIS behavior and that he'll cease blaming others for his conviction. I won't hold my breath though.


  1. GOOD JOB ERIN DEYOUNG and thanx for this coverage of this case

  2. Does anyone have any idea what a tremendous amount of wasted resources went into a case for prosecuting a guy who is already serving LIFE in prison and will die in prison? Isn't our state budget in crisis? Aren't we all having to make tough decisions and use our discretion to see where the tax money goes? As a tax payer, I cringe at the thought of how much money went into prosecuting his case and I laugh at the idea that the defendant will pay the cost when he will never see the outside of a prison for the rest of his life.

  3. it is only a waste of money and time if you are not involved,obviously the jury felt it was not a waste of time ,before you make specious comments in a void ,"walk a mile in the victim's moccasins"

  4. Anonymous: The author of this blog makes it her life's work to "walk miles in victim's moccasins." I understand you must have a connection to this particular case, but this blog's author observes court cases day after day, month after month. To label her as "in a void" is terribly misplaced.
