UPDATE: Vann has since been transferred to Broome County Jail.
ITHACA, N.Y. – Nearly three months After his conviction, Jeremy Vann was sentenced to jail time in Tompkins County Court on Monday morning.
Vann, a former deputy with the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department, was convicted on April 7 with one count fourth-degree tampering with a witness and two counts of second-degree attempted coercion. During the trial, which lasted nearly four weeks, he faced 14 other charges related to accusations of domestic violence and robbery, which the jury did not find him guilty for.
Later in April, a representative from the Human Resources Department of Tompkins County said that Vann had been terminated.
“We can confirm that Mr. Vann is no longer employed by Tompkins County,” the official said.
Vann was issued a securing order on Monday morning and taken from the courthouse in handcuffs. He was sentenced by Judge Joseph Cassidy to 30 days of jail time with a three-year probation period.
Vann is currently in custody at the Tompkins County Jail.
