Jayson Williams Gets 5 Years

Former NBA star Jayson Williams was sentenced to five years in prison on Tuesday for accidentally killing his limo driver with a shotgun in 2002. “I’m terribly sorry,” Williams told the family of the victim, Costas Christofi. “I’m not a bad man, but I acted badly on February 14, 2002.” Williams also apologized to his own family, saying “You deserve a better father, son, brother than I’ve been.” He will be eligible for parole after 18 months.
