Williams Sentenced to Five Years for Limo Driver's Death

On Tuesday in Somerville, former Net Jayson Williams was sentenced to five years in prison for the 2002 shooting death of his limo driver, Gus Christofi. Williams had plead guilty last month to aggravated assault to avoid facing retrial on a reckless manslaughter charge, which a jury had deadlocked on in 2004. He is eligible for parole after 18 months.
