TAMPA, Fla. – On Thursday and nearly three years after the horrific street racing accident, Cameron Herrin, the man accused of killing the young mother and her toddler on Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa has been sentenced to 24 years in prison, 6 years short of the maximum of 30.
Cameron Herrin, 21, received 9-years on one count of vehicular homicide and 15-years on the other count to be served consecutively.
Herrin’s lawyer, John Fitzgibbons read a statement in court from Herrin, “I would like to apologize. The amount of remorse, regret and sorrow that I feel is unfathomable. I know that nothing can be done to turn back the clock. I am so sorry for what I did and what I caused. I always pray for the Reisinger and Raubenolt families. My life will be dedicated to repaying the cost of the lives I took.”
On May 23, 2018, 24-year-old Jessica Reisinger-Raubenolt, was pushing her 1-year-old daughter, Lillia, in a stroller across Bayshore Blvd. Tampa Police investigators believe two teenagers were street racing on Bayshore, with speeds over 100 miles per hour.
One of the vehicles, a Ford Mustang, driven by then 18-year-old Cameron Herrin, collided in two the mother and daughter, killing them both.
Since the street racing accident, the City of Tampa has added three crosswalks with flashing lights and reduced the speed limit on Bayshore 10-miles per hour, from 45 to 35.

Poor mother and child, but also, poor kid. Nobody deserves a 24 year sentence, yet alone not for a grave accident at a 17 years old. Kid had the whole life ahead of him. As soon as family mourns their dead, they will be terrified of what they done to him. As if it can bring dead back. Not that fucked up US legal system is not to blame. And that is done purely just so Florida state and police could say that they did smth about it. We lost two lives – lets throw away one more for a good mesure. Truly tragic.
