1/2/2018 - A longtime south Oklahoma City drug dealer, pimp, thief, thug, and rapist was recently released from prison (again) - only to be arrested shortly thereafter for failure to register as a sex offender.
Henry Tyrone Thornton Jr., 37, known on the streets as "T-Nutty," is a lifetime criminal, self-proclaimed member of the Rolling 20 Crips, and a never ending burden on society.
Thornton is well-known to JohnTV and it's creator Brian Bates. Bates has document Thornton's criminal activities on S. Robinson Ave. for years and has personally had Thornton arrested several times - as seen in the video below...
Thornton's adult criminal resume looks to have started in 1999 in Oklahoma County when he pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine, at only 19 years old. Thornton was sentenced to a five-year deferred. That sentence was eventually revoked and Thornton was sentenced to four-years in prison.
At only 21-years old, Thornton pleaded guilty to possession of a stolen vehicle and drug dealing. Thornton served less than a year on his two-year sentence and three years on a six-year sentence.
In 2001 Thornton also served a 60-day jail sentence in Canadian County on a felony larceny of merchandise from a retailer guilty plea. Also that year, Thornton served a 30-day jail stay in Cleveland County after pleading guilty to felony grand larceny.
In 2004, at age 24, Thornton pleaded guilty in Oklahoma County to a misdemeanor charge of offering to engage in prostitution. Thornton was sentenced to one-year in jail.
In 2006, at 26, Thornton was convicted of pimping, possession of drugs and paraphernalia. Thornton was sentenced to six-years in prison. Thornton only served slightly more than three-years.
In 2010, at 30, Thornton was charged in Cleveland County with crimes against public justice, larceny from a retailer, driving under suspension, and driving without insurance. Thornton pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one-year of probation.
In 2013, at 33, Thornton was convicted of Kidnapping involving a sex crime, sexual battery and robbery. After his arrest, Thornton was also charged with possession of contraband in jail. Despite Thornton's past habitual criminal history, he was only sentenced to eight-years in prison. As Thornton's post has proven, he only served a fraction of that time - Thornton was released after only serving half, or four-years, of his sentence.
In that case, according to court documents, Thornton approached a young woman he did not know at a south OKC 7-11 and asked for a ride. When the women refused, Thornton forced his way into her vehicle and made her to drive to a remote location. Once there, Thornton physically and sexually assaulted her. Thornton then dumped the woman on the side of the road, drove to and parked the victim's vehicle near his mother's house - where he was living.
Imagine your loved one being kidnapped and assaulted by this habitual criminal and seeing him only serve four-years in prison!
In 2014, a assault and battery charge in Logan County was dismissed.
Thornton was most recently released from prison on Oct. 13, 2017.
Thornton immediately returned to the S. Robinson area and has been seen by JohnTV consorting with known prostitutes, drug dealers and addicts.
Last Friday, Thornton was arrested on a felony warrant after he failed to register as a sex offender upon his release from prison.
Thornton is currently being held in the Oklahoma County Jail on a $4,000 bond.
JohnTV will continue to follow Thornton's criminal activities.
