Hit-and-run driver convicted and sentenced

WRAL is reporting that Maceo Christopher Kemp Jr. has been found guilty of felony hit-and-run and driving with a revoked license. Kemp was responsible for last year’s collision which claimed the life of Seth Vidal, a local cyclist and prominent member of the open source software community.

Kemp’s license had been revoked due to a prior DWI, yet he chose to operate his vehicle. He’s going to do 12-24 months minus time served, which means 6-18 months remain.

Kemp’s attorney claimed that he was neither speeding nor intoxicated at the time of the collision.
