    CONROE, Texas -- A Houston man convicted of drunken driving nine times since 1980 has been sentenced to life in prison.
    The Montgomery County judge who sentenced Donald Middleton on Tuesday said the 56-year-old man is a habitual offender.

    Middleton pleaded guilty last week to driving drunk in a May 2015 traffic accident.

    Investigators say Middleton was arrested after he fled on foot after the wreck, ran to a store and begged the clerks not to turn him in.

    Prosecutors say Middleton has already served four prison terms for alcohol-related convictions.

    That drunk? Life is only about a 2 yr sentence. Why the fuck did they give him his license back over and over?

    That being said Schmoop

    In Mayberry they would have let him sleep it off in a jail cell. Deputy Fife would have let him loose in the morning.

    The part that blows my mind about this story is the fact that he had a valid license.

    How the fuck is that possible? Even if the DUIs started 30 years ago.. If you get 3 in 10 years, I think its a 15 year revocation.. 2 in 5 years is a 5 year in most places.

    Very easy to lose your valid drivers license for life with 3-4 DUIs. And if you drive on a revoc, thats when you really get some time.

    I did a couple days in county and there were guys in that were looking at 10-20 year sentences for DUI suspensions, then DUI on the revoc...

    Good. Had a good friend killed by a drunk driver on his 3rd DUI and the piece of shit only got 5 years for it. I can see maybe giving someone a second chance. Nine times - fuck him.
