June 5, 2024 - Kadeem FISHER Sentenced to Life for First-Degree Murder

Wednesday (Jun 5), Circuit Judge Melanie Chase sentenced Kadeem FISHER (32), to life in prison without parole after a Seminole County Jury convicted him on May 17, 2024, for the First-Degree Premeditated Murder of Phillip McCrimmon-Martin (33). Judge Chase also adjudicated FISHER guilty and credited him with 308 days for time served.
In a five (5) day trial with evidence presented by Assistant State Attorneys Tyrone Polk and Jacob Polk, the jury deliberated just under nine (9) hours before returning with the guilty verdict.
In a statement after the sentencing ASA Tyrone Polk said, "In the midst of their grief and mourning over this tragedy, we hope to have provided the family with some measure of solace, however slight, that justice has been served." He added, "Beyond that, we are praying for real and lasting comfort to the family and friends of the victim, Mr. Phillip McCrimmon-Martin, and we ask those that would join us to do the same."
On November 22, 2022. Seminole County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to reports of gunshots in the area of the Vista Haven Apartments and found a trail of blood leading to a locked unit. After gaining entry, deputies found McCrimmon-Martin deceased on the floor, having sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
After a months long investigation, combining witness testimony with security video and electronic communications data, FISHER was identified as the person who had shot McCrimmon-Martin and then fled the scene. A warrant was obtained for FISHER’s arrest, and he was taken into custody on August 2, 2023.
In the coming days FISHER will be transferred to the Florida Department of Corrections to begin serving his sentence.
