LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The Lubbock man accused of sexually assaulting a woman, because she might have reported his ex-wife to Children's Protective Services, will have to serve four years in prison even if he is never convicted of that particular crime.
Scotty Dean Justice, 38, was on federal supervised release back on March 18th for previous convictions. That's the day Lubbock and Hockley County Sheriff's Deputies accused him of sexual assault only 100 or so feet from the county line.
In court records last week Justice denied the sexual assault, but admitted he possessed a firearm in violation of federal law and in violation of his supervised release. So the judge ordered him locked up.
If Justice is convicted on the sexual assault charge he might be made to serve state time after his federal time is up.
