More than five years after he killed a woman headed to the store in an impaired driving crash, an East Naples man is headed to prison.
The State Attorney's Office, 20th Judicial Circuit, announced Friday that a judge sentenced Kiereek Seymour Jr., 29, to 12 years in prison after being found guilty of DUI Manslaughter following an 11-day trial in Collier County in May.
He has also had his driver’s license permanently revoked.
In June, his attorneys had filed an appeal with the Florida Second District Court of Appeal and the judge had canceled the sentencing. It was rescheduled after a denial.
Sandra Marie Maddux, 54, of East Naples, died when Seymour crashed his car into hers about 4 a.m. on a Sunday at the intersection of Lakewood and Davis Boulevards in East Naples. The crash happened at about 4 a.m. on a Sunday.
Maddux was headed to the store to buy items for a charity event, according to a news release.
Seymour told emergency responders he had been drinking one and a half beers. Florida Highway Patrol handled the investigation. It was later determined he had drugs in his system as well as alcohol.
Assistant State Attorney Mara Marzano of the Homicide Unit and Assistant State Attorney Sabsina Karimi handled the case.
