The Waco Tribune-Herald reports that a 29-year-old Saginaw man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined $10,000 for the May 2008 drunken-driving death of a Central Texas man on Interstate 35 in Waco.
Jason Lang Modgling, who pleaded guilty on Wednesday to intoxication manslaughter, was sentenced in the death of Adam Martinzez Jr.
Modgling said that he had started driving to Saginaw from a work site in College Station after having had seven or eight beers with his work crew.
Modgling had asked the jury to sentence him to probation, but the jurors rejected his request and sentenced him to prison.
