(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...

18 months to be served without parole.. so he could potentially be out in a year and a half.. it's good to be rich.

Legal system takes too long.
