Just a few weeks ago, Sharithea Everett, a mother of five, lost two of her sons when they were killed by a suspected drunk driver.
Today, for the first time, she got to see the man police say was behind the wheel as she begins her fight for justice.  The suspected driver, Willie Worthams made his first appearance in court.
"When I look at him I don't see a bad person, I really don't. And when I look at him I see my boys. They're the same age! It's just that split second he made a careless decision," Everett says.
Her two sons Jermaine Asher and Robert Shawn Roberts were on their way to buy her a birthday present when they were hit and killed near Lake Mead and Rainbow. Everett is preparing to bury them this weekend.
Worthams reportedly mouthed "I'm sorry" to Everett in the courtroom. 
Worthams is facing DUI and reckless driving charges. He was granted a continuance until January.
