Judge calls for modification of case

Judge Tommy Hankinson filed a motion for modification of an emotional vehicular homicide case in which a Pike County father of seven was killed. The case will be held in the Pike County courthouse at 9 a.m. Friday. A sleepy Jamal Doaty was sentenced to 12 months in jail but allowed to continue his college education, serving time only on weekends, holidays and during summer vacation. Doaty was charged with second-degree homicide in the death of Donald Kidd of Williamson and with failure to maintain lane. Kidd’s wife, Christie Kidd feels his punishment should be more strictly enforced and is afraid the judge will allow Doaty more freedom from jail time with Friday’s modification. She said Doaty is serving time in Upson County and every day he serves in jail may count as two days toward his sentence. ”We have five children together and four grandchildren. Our family is on the losing end of this. One year is not much to ask,” said Kidd. “Don was a Mr. Mom who stayed home and took care of his children. We lost all our support. I have a 6 year old girl who cries every time I leave the house because she’s afraid I’m not coming back. We’re trying to get on with our lives but I have to fight for this for my children’s sake. They will never get their daddy back.”
