JSO officer, Marcus Kilpatrick, will be fired after entering a plea to culpable negligence in Jacksonville. This was a misdemeanor and he was sentenced to probation and community service. Kilpatrick was going 98 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone, supposedly chasing a car for improper window tint, and killed a citizen in a traffic wreck.
Kilpatrick was originally additionally arrested in Jacksonville for lying to law enforcement and failure to use due care, but those charges were dropped by the state attorney’s office. Witnesses at the scene told the Florida Highway Patrol that he did not have his lights or sirens on, but after the accident turned them on. Kilpatrick told the FHP he had his lights on the whole time.
Kilpatrick was not sentenced to ANY jail time and as long as he completes his probation, will be “punished” no more.
