LAS VEGAS (AP) — A driver who pleaded guilty to DUI charges after police say he plowed his car into a Las Vegas restaurant last spring is sentenced today.
Gage James Lindsey, 20, received a sentence of six to 20 years in prison this morning at the Regional Justice Center.
Prosecutors say Lindsey was under the influence of prescription drugs, marijuana and synthetic spice when he crashed into the Egg & I restaurant west of the Las Vegas Strip on April 1, 2013.
Ten people were injured.
Lindsey pleaded guilty in May to two charges of felony DUI causing substantial bodily harm. Prosecutors dropped four other charges as part of a plea deal.
Lindsey's attorney, Sean Sullivan, had said he would seek a two-to-20 year prison term at sentencing.
