Scott Thomas, the man convicted of aggravated mayhem and attempted murder for the stabbing of a 15-year-old girl and a 60-year-old man in 2007, has asked to withdraw his plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, over the objection of his attorney. At the time of the trial, the jury hung on the question of Thomas’ sanity. If the court allows him to withdraw his plea, it will clear the way for Thomas to be sentenced to state prison.
