Milad Moulayi, 18, of Tustin was sentenced Friday to the maximum term for second-degree murder for the 2008 single-car crash that killed 16-year-old Mackenzie Frazee after a party.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Carla Singer told the Moulayi that he had committed a "brutal and violent crime," and had been warned about driving without a license before.
Moulayi apologized and asked Frazee's family for forgiveness before he was sentenced.
Witnesses said at trial that the teenager was stumbling drunk when he insisted on driving Frazee home.
