Collman receives 60-year sentence



The 43-year-old Seymour man convicted on five criminal charges stemming from his failure to get treatment for his son who ingested a deadly dose of methamphetamine in June of 2018 will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Curtis Collman II received a 60-year prison sentence from Jackson Circuit Judge Richard W. Poynter during a hearing Thursday morning.

Collman was found guilty of a Level 1 felony count of neglect resulting in death and four additional felony and misdemeanor counts by a jury in early October in Jackson Circuit Court.

The charges stem from the June 21, 2018, death of his 8-year-old son, Curtis Collman III.

Poynter ordered Collman to spend 40 years in prison for the neglect conviction and 20 more years for being judged an habitual offender.
