The 39 year-old man was sentenced to 25 years in prision due to his extensive record of DWI arrests that took place in Alabama, Virginia and Georgia. He is also banned from driving a vehicle for 20 years.

The Virginia Beach man had served 4 years in prison previously for a 2006 arrest in which his blood alchohol-content registered a .28 and he had an open container and two children in the vehicle who were not in car seats. He was released from jail in 2010 and then proceeded to get arrested in Alabama four times for DUI within and eight month period. These new arrests violated the conditions of his parole in Virginia.
