Scott Tompkins Admits to Sex Crimes Involving Former TBAISD Student

A Leelanau County teacher has admitted to sex crime charges Monday morning. 

Scott Tompkins is accused of kissing a former student at a Traverse Bay Area Intermediate School District school. Monday, he pleaded guilty to assault and battery in Grand Traverse County. 

In January, Tompkins admitted to assault with intent to commit sexual penetration in a separate case in Leelanau County. He was sentenced to one and a half to 10 years for that crime. 

Tompkins will be sentenced for the assault and battery charges later in March. 

Tompkins is currently being held in prison in Jackson.
