A 20-year-old man convicted in connection with an accident that paralyzed two people was sentenced Wednesday.

A jury convicted Nikolas Papadopolous of negligent operation of a motor vehicle in January. 

A judge sentenced Papadopolous to one year behind bars and 2,000 hours of community service

Papadopoulos crashed his SUV in September of 2013.

The accident left his passenger, 17-year-old Mark Delamere, and another driver, Kevin Celluci, paralyzed.

Papadopoulos told the court he was sorry. 

"[I] can only begin to express how sorry I am for the pain I have brought to these families," said Papadopoulos. 

Family members of the two people injured spoke to a packed courtroom during the sentencing hearing and said Papdopoulos has not shown any remorse. 

"There are no winners here. The outcome won’t change what happened to Mark and all of us on Sept. 6," said Delamere’s mother, Sheila. 

During the trial, prosecutors say Papadopoulos was driving more than 50 mph, 20 mph over the speed limit.
