Before the sentence was handed down, 44-year-old Richtenson  Alyphios said, through a Chuukese translator, that he completely regrets what happened.

Alyphios pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and failure to render aid.  He was not supposed to be driving when he slammed his car into a bus stop in Waipahu in August 2010.  His driver's license had been revoked in May of that year for drunken driving.

The crash killed 68-year-old Benita Duldulao.  A second person at the bus stop was injured but survived.
