22 years in prison and 2.5 years of probation.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 22-year-old Hezron Parks was sentenced Monday. He'll be credited with 602 days served in jail.
Prosecutors say Brayer was riding on the back of a golf cart with other people when he got off to confront the driver of a car that was closely following the cart around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 3, 2018.
Police say Brayer was shot as he approached the other vehicle, which drove away after the shooting. Parks later surrendered to police and testified that he fired in self-defense.
