I tottaly forgot about this incident...

(CNN) -- Former New jersey Nets star Jayson Williams was sentenced to five years in prison Tuesday for the fatal shooting of his limo driver in 2002.

Williams tearfully apologized to the family of Costas "Gus" Christofi during his sentencing hearing Tuesday morning.

"There's not a day I wake up and I don't feel sorry for what I did to Mr. Christofi," Williams said.

He pleaded guilty last month to aggravated assault in the 2002 shooting death of Christofi, a limo driver he had hired.

Under the plea deal, Williams could have been sentenced to anywhere from 18 months without the possibility of parole to five years in prison

The fatal shooting occurred February 14, 2002, in the bedroom of Williams' New jersey estate. The 55-year-old driver had been hired to drive the former athlete and several of his friends to dinner following a sporting event in Pennsylvania.

Afterward, the group, including four members of the Harlem Globetrotters, went back to Williams' home.

The prosecution contended that Williams was recklessly handling a 12-gauge shotgun when it discharged and that he and two others tried to make it look as if Christofi had shot himself.
