Appearing in Courtroom 303 Thursday March 14,2019 before Her Honour Justice Esther Rosenberg is 19 year old SCOTLUND CROMPTON. He’s here to plead guilty and get sentenced for several charges.
CROMPTON is about 5’7” tall and wearing brand new white shoes with about 2” of heel. Without the shoes, he’d be much shorter. He’s slimmer than average, approximately 150lbs. He’s wearing blue jeans and a collared shirt that’s not tucked in.

The victim of his attack is also here along with several family members to support her.
Scullion has negotiated a good deal for her client.
On Tuesday April 3 2018, the Thunder Bay Police attended the hospital at 10am to meet with the young female victim who was assaulted by CROMPTON. Earlier that morning at a home in the 400 block of Oliver Road, CROMPTON got angry at the woman, then proceeded to hit her in the head and face leaving her face swollen. CROMPTON later was going through her phone and became upset that her Manager at work had messaged her wanting her to come in to work. Her face was swollen and she did not want others to see. CROMPTON became jealous, accusing her of having a unprofessional relationship with the Manager and began choking the woman saying “ I should just f**king kill you”.
He slapped and punched her more calling her a “filthy mess, slut whore”. CROMPTON threw her around the room by her hair, and hit her in back so hard that it knocked wind out of her.
The young woman fled the home barefoot heading to nearby Mac’s store to call her father.
Her father brought her to hospital and police were called.
The young woman suffered 2 black eyes and burst blood vessels in left eye. She had bruising all over her body and abrasions on her neck. She required stitches to close a split lip.
CROMPTON was arrested and charged by Thunder Bay Police.
He’s charged with assault causing bodily harm and breaching his probation order. He is also charged later that month for contacting her when he’s ordered not to.

Her Honour tells CROMPTON that this kind of conduct must result in a jail sentence. You’ve demonstrated a history of violence. She tells him “Despite your record and charge, I’m mandated to satisfy myself that you’re suitable for a Conditional Sentence Order”
