Cameron Herrin, now 21, pleaded guilty in December to vehicular manslaughter following the tragic incident in the Bayshore Blvd area that killed Jessica Reisinger Raubenolt and her 1-year-old daughter, Lillia.

The 24-year-old mother was walking with her baby, whom she was carrying in a pushchair, when she was hit by the car Herrin was driving. Jessica and her family were visiting Florida.

The 18-year-old was running at more than 100 miles per hour when he struck the victims, according to authorities.

"I feel responsible for this accident," Herrin's mother, Cheryl Herrin, told the judge on Thursday. "If I could, I would put myself in front of Cameron and accept the punishment they could give him," he said before hearing his sentence.

Prosecutors presented evidence that the Mustang the young man was driving exceeded 100 mph moments before the crash, rapidly decelerating to 30 and 40 mph upon impact.

Another young man involved in the accident, John Barrineau, pleaded guilty to his participation in the race and received a six-year prison sentence.

It was May 23, 2018, when Herrin was traveling over 100 mph in a new Ford Mustang, which had been Herrin's graduation gift, along Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa, racing illegally alongside another friend who was riding another vehicle, John Barrineau, when Herrin fatally ran over 24-year-old Jessica Reisinger, who was trying to legally cross the street by pushing a baby carriage with her 20-month-old daughter.

Herrin reportedly was driving his car at 102 mph at the time of the accident, when the speed limit in the area was 45 mph.

The mother was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where she died. Their one-year, 8-month-old daughter, Lillia Raubenolt, was seriously injured and later died of her injuries.

Herrin had initially pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter and illegal racing on a highway last December.

Herrin's friend, John Barrineau made an agreement with the state to cooperate and receive only 06 years in jail.
