RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Scott Thorson was sentenced to 8-12 years in prison during a probation revocation hearing on Wednesday.

According to Assistant District Attorney John Helzer, Judge Patrick Flanagan handed down the sentence after determining Thorson, under the alias Jess Marlow, presented a risk to himself and others after failing numerous drug tests, and failing to appear during his time in drug court as part of probation.

During Thorson's most recent arrest, parole and probation officers had to force entry into Thorson's residence to make the arrest. He will be transferred to a state prison, but will remain in custody of the Washoe County Sheriff's Office until that time.

The sentence stems from a 2013 burglary and identity theft conviction.

Thorson was thrust into the national spotlight for his book-turned-movie, "Behind the Candelabra," about the last ten years in the life of pianist Liberace and the secret affair he had with the younger Thorson. It was based on Thorson’s memoir, "Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace."

@retired51 Dennis Hof has 30 million plus so I don't think the small fee the bond company wanted was much. And the only other thing he did was set him up with one of his lawyers. So if anyone is "LOL" its Hof and all his bunnies for the publicity he is getting from it.
