Man Gets Life Sentence for DWI. Twice.

A Texas man was sentenced to life in prison in August after being convicted of habitual DWI. This after having previously been sentenced to life in prison in 1997 after accumulating three DWI convictions as of that date.

Fast-forward to 2012. Hernandez, who was paroled after serving 11 years in state prison, was driving down Main Street in Waxahachie with a heavily damaged vehicle. Officers, suspecting he was drunk, took a blood test and found that, indeed, his blood alcohol level was more than two-and-a-half times the legal limit.
