WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- December 1, 2012
A South Florida teen has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for a crash in a stolen car that left a woman dead.
A Palm Beach County judge sentenced 18-year-old Jermaine Nixon on Friday. He was convicted in September of vehicular homicide with failure to render aid, leaving the scene of a crash, grand theft and fleeing and eluding law enforcement.
Authorities say police had been chasing Nixon in March 2010 shortly before he hit a pedestrian, 21-year-old Kathryn Veroxie, and then crashed. The Palm Beach Post reports that Nixon fled on foot but was captured a short time later.
