It was an emotional day in court as Judge Mary Beth McCormick sentenced a 21 year old Ogulcan Atakoglu to 12 years behind bars on Friday for killing a family of 3 in Bethesda.

Atakoglu pleaded guilty to three counts of vehicular manslaughter for a collision that happened on Feb. 27. He was driving down River Road in his 2016 BMW at 116 MPH when he struck a 2016 Chevrolet Volt, operated by Michael Buarque De Macedo.

Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy and Atakoglu’s attorney, David Felsen, held a news conference following the sentencing.
