Lee says that facing the family was the most difficult thing he has ever done—but ultimately, rewarding for all of them.
"It was really hard to sit there and meet this family," Lee says. "I think it was good for all of us that we were able to do that. I felt a lot better about myself. … I want them to know how horrible I felt after it happened. I always wanted to know what you guys thought and how you felt about me."
Lee received a year probation and does community service—maintaining Nicole's gravesite and talking to other truck drivers.
