SAN MARCOS, Texas (AP) – Prosecutors south of Austin say a Hays County man has been sentenced to 99 years in prison following his eighth conviction for drunken driving.

The Hays County district attorney’s office issued a release Thursday saying 64-year-old Jose Marin was sentenced after being convicted earlier in the week.

Authorities say his first conviction for driving while intoxicated was in 1983. He had several other convictions before being convicted twice in 1998. He was released from prison in 2003 and was still on parole when he was arrested in January 2015 for again driving drunk.

Prosecutor Jennifer Stalbaum asked the jury to impose the 99-year sentence so that “we can all sleep at night.”
