Greenville Man Charged with Sexual Assault of a Child

Bobby Joe Tipton III

On April 30, 2024, Hunt County Deputies  arrested Bobby Joe Tipton III of Greenville on charges of Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child under 14 after an investigation was initiated.  The charge means that at least two acts of sexual abuse took place at least 30 days apart.

In Texas, the crime is considered to be a super aggravated offense. Continuous Sexual Assault of a Child under 14 carries a punishment range from 25 years to 99 years or life in prison without the possibility for parole.

The incident was related to officers on March 7, 2024.  It is unclear at this time who initiated the outcry.  Due to the sensitive nature of the crime and the ongoing investigation, the Hunt County Sheriff's Office is unable to provide any more details. 

Tipton is being held in the Hunt County Detention Center on a $250,000 bond.
