Seth Jackson Sentence: Foster Dad Gets 32 Months in Hot Car Death

Kansas foster dad Seth Jackson was sentenced to 32 months in prison Friday for the July death of a 10-month-old girl whom he left in a hot car for two and a half hours.

An emotional Jackson, 29, pleaded in the courtroom, saying he was a “broken man, pleading here for my life,” KSN reported.

Jackson pleaded guilty on Nov. 26 to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Kadillak Poe-Jones, 10 months, although he was originally charged with felony first-degree murder. Investigators said Jackson parked his Dodge Charger outside his home and went inside, where he smoked marijuana. The temperature was about 90 degrees that day.

Jackson had planned to adopt Poe-Jones and her siblings.

“Every day was getting up in the morning, going to the gym, coming home, getting my husband up for work, getting my oldest son up for school and then getting myself and five children under the age of 6 ready for their day,” Jackson said, according to The Wichita Eagle. “Now that’s all gone.”

“I can’t blame anybody else. I have to put it on me because that’s the only place that it belongs,” he said.

“Kadillak’s future was in your hands. I don’t believe in retribution. I don’t believe in getting even. But I have to believe in justice for the citizens,” the Eagle quoted Judge David Dahl, speaking toward the end of the hearing. “I believe your actions were unintended. I have a more difficult time believing they were accidental.”

Jackson and his partner had two adopted children and were fostering four children.

Jackson’s mother, Dottie Jackson, told NBC when it occurred, “He wants to die. Seth's children — that's his life."
