Scott A. Lippert – Another Sex Offender can’t follow rules


“The law is very, very clear” she said. “This violation of the rules … is very, very serious.”

A 36-year-old convicted sex offender will spend an additional year in jail after he babysat five children July 2, Manitowoc County Circuit Judge Darryl Deets decided today during the man’s sentencing hearing.

Scott A. Lippert of Mishicot will be on probation for seven and a half years, which is the maximum allowed for the felony sex offender working with children charge. He already has spent six months in jail while waiting for the case to be resolved.

“If you violate this probation, I am going to come down on you like a ton of bricks,” Deets warned Lippert in court.

Lippert is to continue with sex offender treatment, maintain full-time employment, follow all sex offender rules and have no contact with children under age 18 unless supervised by a responsible adult with his probation agent’s approval.

“If I didn’t think you could do it, I wouldn’t put you on probation,” Deets said.

A transfer to the Brown County jail for employment reasons was granted.

Two first-degree sexual assault of a child charges were dropped at an Oct. 8 plea date because the state would be unable to prove the charges without the cooperation of an alleged victim and her mother.

Lippert has followed the terms of his extended supervision after he spent a year in prison for molesting a 12-year-old child in Indiana.

With the exception of the sex offender working with children charge, Lippert has remained out of trouble, Deets said.

Assistant District Attorney Jerilyn Dietz requested Deets to sentence Lippert to two and a half years in prison followed by five years of extended supervision.

“The law is very, very clear” she said. “This violation of the rules … is very, very serious.”

Lippert’s attorney Erik Loy asked for probation and 90 days of jail time at the most.

“(He) is well aware now that (babysitting) is not permitted,” Loy said.
