ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A man prosecutors call a serial drunk driver has been convicted of felony driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs for the third time.

An Anchorage jury Thursday convicted 50-year-old Ronald Winters of felony DUI, reckless endangerment and driving with a revoked license.

He was arrested in January 2012 following a rollover crash on the Glenn Highway near Eagle River. Prosecutors say blood tests at a hospital revealed alcohol, opiates, cocaine, and methamphetamine in his body.

Besides the felony convictions, Winters had been convicted three times of misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

He will be sentenced Sept. 25.

Prosecutors say he faces a sentence of three to five years in prison and could face an additional two years for violating probation.
