TAMPA — The 17-year-old driver accused of racing the car that struck and killed a mother and child on Bayshore Boulevard was booked into county jail Friday morning on charges filed in adult criminal court.

John Alexander Barrineau had been held in a juvenile detention center since his arrest May 23 at the scene of the fatal crash. Tampa Police say Barrineau was behind the wheel of a Nissan Altima that was racing with a 2018 Ford Mustang driven by Cameron Herrin, 18. Herrin's car hit and killed a mother who was legally crossing Bayshore while pushing her toddler daughter in a stroller.

Jessica Raubenolt, 24, died from her injuries shortly after the crash. Her 21-month-old daughter, Lillia, died the following day.

Now Herrin and Barrineau each face two felony counts of vehicular homicide, street racing and reckless driving with serious bodily injury. Herrin's 20-year-old brother, Tristan Herrin, was a passenger in the Mustang at the time of the crash and faces a misdemeanor street racing charge.

Criminal defense attorney Anthony Rickman joined Barrineau for his first appearance hearing Friday, accepting his bond and conditions of release. Barrineau's bail was set at $50,500 — $25,000 for each count of vehicular homicide and $500 for the street racing charges. He was released about 4 p.m. Friday after posting bond.

Barrineau is required to wear a GPS ankle bracelet at his own expense and surrender his driver's license and passport. He is prohibited from contacting either Herrin brother and cannot leave Hillsborough County without permission from county court.
