The man who crashed his car into a Farmingdale home and killed a man at the end of a high-speed chase received seven to 14 years in prison Friday.
The December 2006 chase began when police tried to pull Richard Mair over for acting suspiciously. Mair later crashed his car into a home, killing occupant William Calhoun. It was later found Mair was under the influence of drugs. He pleaded guilty in September.
"The message I wanted to get to the court was what kind of person [was] taken from this world,? son Brian Calhoun said at the sentencing.
Mair apologized to the victim?s family before he was sentenced. He said he is trying to change his life and vowed to become half the man Calhoun was.
Brian Calhoun said Mair?s promise meant nothing.
Mair?s sentence was one year shy of the maximum he would have faced if convicted at trial. The sentence was part of a plea deal.
