Trial date set for Lufkin man accused of serial stalking


A Lufkin man that is accused of being a serial stalker was scheduled to accept a plea deal today in the 159 District Court, but that did not happen.

Instead, a court date was set for Sept. 16.

In April of 2012, Lufkin police arrested Stephen Thompson after several complaints from his ex-girlfriend.

He's accused of calling police on five occasions, complaining about drug activity in the woman's apartment.

Officers searched the place and found no evidence.

At one point, Thompson's said to have picked up the woman's dry cleaning and left it at her door.

The crime of Serial Stalking is a third degree felony.

The woman told investigators she wanted to tell him to get lost, but was scared of retaliation.

Thompson's attorney, John Tatum, would not give a comment for why a plea deal was not reached today.

Prosecuting Attorney Lane Thompson said that Thompson still has the chance to accept a plea before the trial date.
