On February 17, 2020, police in Fort Myers, Florida responded to a horrific single-vehicle accident in which a minivan carrying two women and a three-year-old girl veered off the road, hit several palm trees, and flipped over. The little girl, Serenity Robinson, was not in a car seat and was unrestrained. Her mother, Leslie Joe Zeagler, was found to be impaired by multiple controlled substances and survived with minor injuries. Serenity was not so lucky.

Leslie was arrested and charged with manslaughter. Later, Fort Myers police officer Tyler Williams was also charged after prosecutors learned he had pulled Leslie over a month earlier, found illegal drugs in the van, and let her go because he didn’t feel like calling DCF that morning. Even though this officer’s intervention likely would have saved Serenity’s life, a judge dismissed the charges, and the only person prosecuted was her mother.

In this episode, you’ll also hear my conversation with Serenity’s father, Randy Robinson, who hasn’t given up on getting justice for his baby girl.

This is the infuriating story of Serenity Robinson.
