SAN  FRANCISCO — 2014-04-09 —A man who fatally struck a high school girl on her 17th birthday  on San Francisco’s Sloat Boulevard last year was sentenced Tuesday morning to  six months in jail following an emotional court hearing.

Kieren Brewer, 29, of San Francisco, arrived in court with his  mother and father to be sentenced for the DUI crash on March 2, 2013, that  killed 17-year-old Hanren Chang, a junior at San Francisco’s Lowell High  School.

She added that Chang had relayed that he did not want further  punishment for Brewer.

Conroy called the father’s statements a “remarkable statement of  compassion.”

Brewer gave a statement to the court, choking back tears, as he  said, “There are no words to express the sorrow and remorse I feel.”
