Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A judge showed no mercy for the man accused of driving under the influence last Halloween, hitting and killing a 12-year-old girl.
Justin Caramanica will spend up to 20 years in prison.
The courtroom was filled with emotion during sentencing on Monday, even from Caramanica himself.
"There are really no words to express my true remorse and sadness I have caused for the Love family," Caramanica said tearfully.
Police say Caramanica had consumed alcohol and taken prescription pills before he struck and killed little Faith Love as she was trick-or-treating on Halloween night.
More than 30 family members and friends of Faith Love packed the courtroom to hear the sentencing.
The sentencing gives the Love family a sense of closure.
"There are fragments here that have to be put back together, and that's just my heart..." Faith's mother, Rocquell Love said.
Caramanica shed tears as the family showed pictures of Faith Love.
He will be up for parole after eight years in prison.
