Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Just over a year after he shot his teacher to death, Brazill is sentenced to 28 years in prison.
A Florida judge just handed down the sentence for the 14 year old about a half-hour ago.
Brazill faced as much as a LIFE sentence in prison.
The teenager showed little emotion as the judge announced his decision.
But yesterday, for the first time in court, Brazill apologized for fatally shooting Barry Grunow.
