On March 26, 2018, Jeffrey James Tippit, age 39, was sentenced to a year in county jail after entering a "no contest" plea to two separate charges of felony domestic violence. Tippit will be on supervised probation for 4 years following his release from jail and will have to complete one year of domestic violence counseling, cannot possess weapons and must not have any contact with the victim for 5 years.
The case arose from a series of domestic violence incidents that occurred in April, August and September of 2017. Tippit had charges pending against him when he committed new acts of domestic violence against the same victim, some of which were discovered during the continued investigation of the 1st reported incident.
The case was investigated by the Placerville Police Department and the District Attorney's Office Special Victims Unit Investigator, and prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Miles Perry. Tippit has prior misdemeanor domestic violence convictions from 2000 and 2007.
