Thompson sentenced to 35 years for aggravated sex crime

Randall Chad Thompson will spend the next 35 years in prison. Thompson was recently convicted of an aggravated sex crime against a small child.

The abuse went on for about a year while the little girl was seven and eight years old.

In sentencing Thompson, Judge Mike Canaday said the victim suffered permanent injury and trauma and pointed out Thompson was a fugitive for three years.

When he does get out of prison, Thompson will be required to register as a sex offender for life.

The defense still says Thompson was wrongly convicted and that the allegations resulted from a woman who wanted revenge against him.
