A Rochester man who drove through a schoolyard field, killing a seven-year-old boy received the maximum sentence Friday.

James Bradley will spend one and a third to four years in prison because of  that crash near School 33 on Webster Avenue in May 2011. He was found guilty of criminally negliegent homcide and assault by a jury back in August. He was acquitted of the highest charge of manslaughter.

Seven-year-old Sahmir Williams was killed in the crash. His mother spoke to News10NBC after the judge handed down Bradley's sentence. 

Layla Frasier, Sahmir's mother, said, "My nightmare is still very real. He can apologize a hundred times and he can spend a hundred years in prison. My nightmare is still going to be real for the rest of my life. It's not gonna change anything about my life."

Another child, Kali Garcia, was also injured in that crash.
