Former Tompkins County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremy Vann will be re-sentenced Friday after an appellate court granted his release from jail in June, just four days after being sentenced to 30 days behind bars.
Vann was convicted in April on 3 of the 14 counts against him for a series of domestic incidents spanning from December 2014 to March 2015. He was found guilty of witness tampering and coercion, but acquitted of assault and strangulation, among other counts. Vann’s attorney submitted a stay of judgment following sentencing and the appellate court granted a stay.
According to the Ithaca Voice, Van will withdraw his appeal Friday and the District Attorney’s Office will withdraw its pursuit to go to trial on a tampering charge, which the jury was hung on when they announced their verdict in April. He will then be sentenced to time-served.
