An Albany man was sentenced in Linn County Circuit Court on Friday to three years in prison for a sex crime and a weapons crime.

Scott Samuel Thomson, 60, had pleaded guilty to luring a minor and felon in possession of a firearm on Dec. 27.

Charges of attempt to commit luring a minor and unlawful use of a weapon were dismissed at sentencing.

Thomson must register as a sex offender and he will be on post-prison supervision for two years.

The crimes occurred on Nov. 8 and were investigated by the Albany Police Department.

Thomson provided a minor an explicit verbal description or a narrative account of sexual conduct for the purpose of inducing the minor or purported minor to engage in sexual conduct, according to court paperwork.
