In Sylar Newton's death, Priem gets 17 years in prison

Collins sentenced to lifetime probation

"It's not what we expected, but it is some justice for Sylar," said Laurie Fant of the Sylar Newton Foundation. Thirty-seven-year-old Christina Priem, Sylar's adoptive mother, and Christina's own mother, Nancy Collins, were sentenced Monday by Judge Michael Bluff. Priem must serve 17 years in state prison, while 59-year-old Collins will serve lifetime probation.
