SCOTT APPEALS Blends Guilty t<» Manslaughter Charge; Objects to Sentence I OKLAHOMA CITY, Sept. 29.— j 1.19 Jim Scott, sentenced to 99 ; years in tile penitentiary on a charge of manslaughter, today appealed to the criminal court of appeals for relief from such long sentence. Scott pleaded guilty at Madill to the fatal shooting of Abe Works, former Marshall county deputy sheriff. Scott maintained life sentences are permitted in Oklahoma only on murder charges, while manslaughter sentences may run from four to 99 years. Scott says the Marshall county district court is splitting hairs in trying to convince him 99 years is not a life sentence.
