MONROE, Michigan (WNWO) -- The man charged with two counts of reckless driving causing death was sentenced Thursday with up to 30 years in prison.
Monroe County Circuit Judge Daniel White sentenced 49-year-old Raymond Reyome to spend at least 11.5 years in prison before he's eligible for parole.
"Is it enough, it's not enough, 100 is not enough, because nothing can justify, nothing can bring these two young young wonderful little children back," said Judge White.
Reyome was charged for killing two teens with his pickup truck on the July 4, 2018. He struck and killed 13-year-old Justin Haun and 16-year-old Alyssa Haun while they were walking on a private lawn in Bedford Township.
"I don't want to forget my children but I don't want to remember them in this fashion and this has just been too mentally exhausting way too mentally exhausting," said Barbara Haun, Alysaa and Justin's mother.
Reyome apologized to the family in court. Barbara says she will use her faith as the family moves forward from this tragedy.
"I firmly believe that God is the ultimate judge and jury in life, I do, and everybody deserves Gods grace, Gods grace is free, it's free for me, it's free for him, he just has to ask for it," said Barbara.
Reyome plead 'no contest' in December to two counts of reckless driving causing death and admitted to smoking marijuana when he hit the two teens.
