The 32-year-old man of Jensen Beach also pled guilty to driving without a license and leaving the scene of a crash involving death before the Circuit Judge.
He was sentenced to 22 years for all three counts, according to court records. As part of the plea, he will not be able to obtain a driver’s license for the rest of his life. Detectives said, the 32-year-old had a blood-alcohol level of nearly three times the legal limit after the crash.
Investigators said, the man was speeding down Boynton Beach Road near Davie Avenue when he crashed into a Buick sedan driven by 20-year-old Peter Larry. Investigators said, the 32-year-old was driving at 103 mph in a 45 mph zone at the time of the crash.
