Both Cameron and his friend were arraigned before law court and charged with overspeeding alongside murder. His brother Tristan was fortunate to be cleared of charges due to not being the one behind the steering wheel.
John Barrineau the accomplice was given 6 years in jail with 15 years probation whilst Cameroon was scheduled for 30 years in jail but had the state advocating for it to be dropped to 18 years due to him being too young for that.

The judge who sat on the case gave him 24 years after rescinding his decision on the 30 years in jail due to Cameron having a clean criminal record.
