LIBERACE’s ex-toyboy SCOTT THORSON sentenced, after pleading guilty to burglary and ID theft charges.

Thorson, 54, was sentenced to 60 months probation but avoided prison after pleading guilty to burglary and identity theft charges, RadarOnline  reported.

Thorson, who now goes by the name Jess Marlow, was arrested by Reno, Nevada police on Feb. 22 after he found a wallet with credit cards and out them to use.

But Thorson if he violates probation he will be facing up to 10 years behind bars.

As The ENQUIRER previously reported Thorson wrote the book on which the hit HBO movie Behind the Candelabra was based. The sordid saga of his six-year sexual relationship with Liberace was a ratings smash with Emmy nominated perfs for Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as Thorson.

Moonlite Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof put up $15,000 to bail out Thorson earlier this year.
