Cipriano Son To Be Sentenced For 2012 Baseball Bat Murder

PONTIAC (WWJ) – Twenty-year-old Tucker Cipriano pleaded no contest to charges he killed his father and seriously injured his mother and brother with a baseball bat in an April 2012 attack.

Wednesday he will be sentenced.

Cipriano plans to address the courtroom and his attorney, Mitch Ribitwer, is pleased the family can now move on.

“I’m glad to see that there is this closure and now the family can go forward,” said Ribitwer. “That the legal process is behind the family and now they can get on with their lives and whatever healing process is going to occur – both emotionally and physically can commence.”

“Tucker is going to stand up and take responsibility – he is going to discuss … his father, his mother, brother, sister and ask for healing – ask that they go forward with their life and ask for forgiveness from his family and from God,” added Ribitwer.

Ribitwer says Cipriano has accepted the fact that he’s going to prison for the rest of his life.
