    Police said Tovar-Flores slammed into a bus stop, killing Adrian Velasquez.

    Judge Mary Kay Holthus handed down a sentence of six to fifteen years in prison.

    Through an interpreter, Tovar-Flores told Judge Holthus he was remorseful and asked for forgiveness.

    Velasquez’s family was inside the courtroom, but they did not speak during the hearing.
