The man who was charged with the 2022 Memorial Day traffic accident in Montgomery Count that claimed the life of Stacey Fowler of Toombs County, voluntarily entered a guilty plea Thursday morning before Oconee Judicial Circuit Judge Michael Johnson.

Wearing his orange jumpsuit from the Treutlen County Jail, Adam Stikeleather stood before Judge Johnson to accept responsibility for the head-on crash that resulted in the death of Fowler on Monday, May 30, 2022.

Thursday morning, Judge Johnson said Stikeleather had tested positive following the crash for methamphetamine, cocaine, and marijuana. He was charged with vehicular homicide in the first degree and DUI drugs.

On the day of the accident, Stikeleather and Fowler were driving near Buzzy’s store outside Uvalda each heading in the opposite direction, when Stikeleather crossed the center line and directly into the path of Fowler. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

At the time of his arrest, the Georgia State Patrol reported that Stikeleather had had several DUI charges in the past. His driver’s licenses had been revoked in Missouri and Arkansas, and he had been denied a license in Georgia. However, somehow, he had been able to obtain a valid license from the State of Florida.

Before sentencing, Stikeleather apologized to Fowler’s family who were in court and asked for their forgiveness.

Judge Johnson accepted Stikeleather voluntary plea and sentenced him to 15 years in prison for the homicide with 7 years to serve in the Department of Corrections with the remainder of the sentence to be served on probation. He will also serve 12 months consecutively with that sentence on the drug charges. He was also mandated to fulfill other monetary and counseling as ordered by the Judge.

Fowler was 55 years old at the time of her death and was employed by the Georgia Department of Corrections at Montgomery State Prison at the time of her death.
