Fairbanks man gets 2 years for 9th DUI

Posted: Sunday, December 05, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A Fairbanks man has been sentenced to two years in prison for his 9th drunken driving conviction since 1975.

The Daily News-Miner reports John R. Miller will also be subject to seven years of probation under the terms of a plea agreement.

Superior Court Judge Robert Downes called the sentence "extremely light," but accepted the plea deal since it fell within the presumptive sentencing range.

The 57-year-old Miller previously had his driver's license revoked for life. His latest arrest came in April when he crashed a 1997 Ford Expedition into a guardrail while police were trying to pull him over.
