SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California man convicted of his eighth drunk driving charge has been sentenced to a maximum term of six years in prison.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1k9oz6n ) that Pablo Servin Sanchez’s latest violation was Oct. 3, when he backed his pickup across a busy route in Healdsburg, nearly causing a crash with a big-rig.

Sonoma County District Attorney Jill Ravitch says Sanchez’s blood alcohol content was found in two tests to be .31 percent and then .33 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent.

The 50-year-old’s eight convictions stretch over 20 years. Ravitch says he was also driving on a suspended license at the time of his last arrest.

Sanchez’s driving privileges are to be revoked for 10 years when he leaves prison.
