CLEVELAND -- A man who drove his SUV into a street fair over the summer, killing two people and injuring two others, learned his punishment on Wednesday.

Timothy Spock, 35, will spend 15 years behind bars. He pleaded guilty last month to several counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular assault and DUI.

Prosecutors say back in July, Spock plowed through metal barriers at the Dancin' in the Streets fair on West 117th Street and Clifton Boulevard and into a crowd of people.

Mitchell Andelmo, 27, and Basil Bass, 44, were killed. Andelmo's girlfriend, Constance Pokorny, 25, and Kevin Litt, 37, were hurt.

At his sentencing Wednesday, Spock apologized to the victims' families.

"With all my heart, I wish that I could change the events that happened. Please know that I have prayed for the victims and their families to express how sorry I am."

Speaking on his late son, Mitchell, Henry Andelmo also addressed the court.

"I wish he would have gotten the maximum, but this is what the judge decided, and I can live with that. He took away probably one of the best people that was in Cleveland. If you would talk to his friends, it was pretty amazing how many people loved him," Andelmo said.

Basil Bass' brother, Lebron, also hoped for a longer sentence.

"I wish that he (would've) got the maximum, but I'm comfortable with the 15 years.  I hope he realizes what he done ... just don't want him to get out and start drinking again," Bass said.
