The driver who struck and killed a Casper teenager last May, while being chased by police was sentenced today in court. 

Scott Coleman ended up crashing his vehicle through the Goodstein building in downtown Casper. 

And today, the courtroom was packed with family members of both Scott Coleman, as well as the victims family, Jeremy Webb, who died in the crash last May. 

Coleman was sentenced to 10 to 13 years in prison for aggravated homicide. 

Webb's father addressed Coleman with a photo album of his son and said, "I hope you never forget his face." 

Last May, Coleman hit and killed 18 year old, Jeremy Webb, who was crossing Center Street, before crashing his vehicle into the Goodstein building. 

A representative from the Goodstein building spoke this morning of the traumatic incident for employees when Coleman's vehicle drove through the building last year. 

Coleman was also sentenced to two to four years in prison for property destruction, running concurrent with his other sentence.  

Lisa Coleman, his wife, addressed the court as well and said even before the incident, she feared her husband's mental illness would lead to something bad happening. 

The sentence that was handed down was a joint plea agreement. 

Both attorney's acknowledged Coleman's mental illness, but could not ignore the face that Jeremy Webb's life was taken that day. 

Coleman addressed the court as well and said, "I'm not the victim... and I don't have words to express sorrow.  I pray the victim's family can forgive me for their own peace."
