Former Ada drug court counselor who sued over losing job now arrested on sex charges
A former Boise addictions therapist has been arrested and charged with more than two dozen felony counts after several women in Laramie, Wyo., accused him of sexual assault and blackmail.
Scott Alan Addison, 48, who formerly worked for the Ada County drug and veterans courts and for the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance, is charged with first-degree sexual assault, blackmail, attempted blackmail, felonious restraint and 20 counts of possession of child pornography.
Though he never faced similar charges in Idaho, public records turn up references to possible questionable conduct by Addison while he lived here. At the same time, he has sued previous Idaho employers in federal court, claiming he was discriminated against due to his gender and that a supervisor carried on a sexual relationship with him.
Addison, who is being held in the Albany County Detention Center in Laramie, was arraigned in court Tuesday morning. He pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for trial on Aug. 28, said Nuria Mathog, a Laramie Boomerang newspaper reporter who attended the hearing.
