Ricardo Espinoza pleaded guilty last week to one count of intoxication manslaughter with a deadly weapon and one count of leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury or death.
Espinoza, 22, testified that he consumed seven beers, snorted meth and smoked marijuana less than 24 hours before he crashed into a motorcycle riden by Dustin Dodson.
Espinoza's lawyer praised him for taking responsibility for his actions. The prosecutor said he deserved no mercy.
