By  | 

Cameron Herrin has been sentenced to more than two decades of incarceration after he caused the tragic accident that resulted in Jessica Reisinger-Raubenolt and Lillia’s deaths, both aged one. It occurred in 2021.

John Fitzgibbons argued on behalf of Herrin that due to being young and unaware of its potential consequences for speeding, his attorney couldn’t adequately defend them.

Jessica Reisinger-Raubenolt

Cameron Herrin was arrested after being involved in a fatal street-racing crash that killed both mother and baby, which resulted in their deaths. On Thursday a judge sentenced him to 24 years behind bars despite arguments from his lawyer who stated his error isn’t worthy of such harsh a punishment.

At her sentencing hearing, both her husband and uncle gave moving tributes to their wife, mother and daughter; each remembered fondly her death which caused such sorrow to both families and friends of the victim.

Lillia and her family had been on their way to LA Fitness when the accident occurred, walking her stroller along Bayshore Boulevard. John Barrineau, brother of Lillia’s friend who drove the vehicle that struck Lillia was later charged with vehicular homicide and received a six-year sentence from his attorney due to new brain science findings which show young people may not fully grasp the potential repercussions of their actions.

At Jessica Raubenolt’s sentencing hearing, her husband and daughter’s father gave testimony about its effect on their family, including candlelight vigils held for their daughter and how difficult it has been to discuss her death. They spoke of candlelight vigils held to commemorate Jessica and how it remains painful to speak of her now that she’s gone.

At pedestrian crosswalk, Herrin struck two women and their toddler with his Mustang vehicle, killing both instantly. Tristan, Trista’s son was in the passenger seat at the time.

Herrin was represented by John Fitzgibbons who spent much of the morning painting Herrin as caring and forgivable, calling the accident a tragic mistake. A doctor testified that 18-year-old brains don’t fully develop like adults’; according to this testimony Herrin may have understood speeding risks but failed to recognize its consequences; ultimately the judge sentenced Herrin to 24 years incarceration before becoming eligible for parole eligibility.

Cameron Herrin, the influencer who killed a mother and toddler daughter in a street-racing crash, has been sentenced to 24 years behind bars by a judge for his involvement. His family wants this sentence reduced as they portray Cameron as caring teenager who didn’t mean any harm towards anyone. They have made their plea through tweets and TikTok posts depicting Cameron as being kind-hearted young man who simply didn’t mean for his actions to have such devastating results.

At age 18, he fatally struck Jessica Reisinger-Raubenolt and Lillia, her 21-month-old baby daughter, while racing a friend in his 2018 Ford Mustang GT graduation present, killing them both instantly.

At the time of his accident, Herrin was just graduating from Tampa Catholic High School and planning to study marketing at Hillsborough Community College. The Mustang he received as his graduation present from his parents was given to him as part of a graduation present from them; additionally he used his time doing lawn mowing or other chores to earn extra money – although without any criminal record. While initially considering trying him as a juvenile offender, eventually an adult court decided against this route and decided instead.


Hillsborough Circuit Judge Christopher Nash handed down his verdict after hearing days of testimony, sentencing Cameron Herrin to 24 years for the street-racing crash that killed Jessica Reisinger-Raubenolt and Lillia 21 months old, on Bayshore Boulevard while trying to cross with their stroller when hit by Herrin’s black 2018 Ford Mustang.

Her mother testified that she was driving home when Herrin called to tell her of what had occurred. Herrin and his friend John Barrineau had been racing their vehicles along a miles-long sidewalk that spans multiple traffic lanes on iconic boulevard. Herrin’s attorney John Fitzgibbons claimed he wasn’t aware of all the consequences associated with speeding; according to doctors’ findings on teenager brain wiring patterns; therefore he asked that court consider a lesser sentence than possible for Herrin.
