DUI Manslaughter Sentence

Today Kiereek Seymour, 29, was sentenced to 12 years in prison after being found guilty of DUI Manslaughter following an 11-day trial in Collier County last May. He has also had his driver’s license permanently revoked.

The crime happened in May 2014 when the defendant crashed his car into the side of another car at the intersection of Lakewood and Davis Boulevards in East Naples. It happened at about four in the morning on a Sunday. The other driver was a woman on her way to a store to buy items for a charity event. She died from her injuries at the hospital.

Seymour admitted to drinking one and a half beers to emergency responders at the scene. Florida Highway Patrol handled the investigation. It was later determined he had a drug in his system and alcohol.

As part of his sentence, Seymour must have a substance abuse evaluation and follow recommendations for treatment. He must also attend a victim impact panel and pay for all court costs.
Assistant State Attorney Mara Marzano of the Homicide Unit and Assistant State Attorney Sabsina Karimi handled the case.
