The sentence was handed down on Thursday.

Prosecutors had sought 50 years prison time, while the defense has asked for 10 years.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Regan was in the courtroom when she apologized in court for the first time on Thursday. With tears streaming down her face, she said she wronged three families.

“I want to say that I am wrong. I have wronged three families and for that I am sorry,” said Michael.

“The one thing I couldn’t get out of my mind is that you left the scene of the crime,” Fulton County Superior Court Judge Kimberly Esmond Adams told Aimee Michael. “And then you followed a course of conduct designed to cover up what happened.”

A Fulton County jury found Michael, 24, guilty on all counts Monday.

Michael was charged with starting a collision that killed five people on Easter Sunday 2009 and then fleeing the scene.

Her mother, 52-year-old former school teacher Sheila Michael, was also sentenced to eight years in prison for her role in the cover-up. She pleaded guilty to two counts of tampering with evidence and hindering the apprehension of a criminal before Aimee Michael’s trial began.
