The man convicted of criminally negligent homicide after driving across a playground in 2011, killing a seven-year-old boy, was sentenced to 1 1/3 to four years in prison.
James Bradley, 53, was also convicted of assault but acquitted of manslaughter in August.
Police say Bradley drove his SUV across a Webster Avenue playground in May of 2011, hitting and killing seven-year-old Sahmir Williams and injuring eight-year-old Kaili Garcia, both students at School 33.
In court, there were tears and emotional sentiments from Williams' family, who said he was a gift to the world and a loving seven-year-old.
His mother, Layla Frasier, recalled the last time she saw her son alive. The morning of the accident, before he went to school, he told her "I love you mom, see you later."
"Life will never be the same. He's a big part of me gone. You know when you lose a kid, you lose yourself, and now that this is finally over, I can try and find myself and what I'm going to do with the rest of my life, because this was my life for two and a half years," said Frasier.
In court, Bradley turned around and addressed the families and said "I feel your loss, I am sorry, I am so sorry."
