LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - An Albany County man has been sentenced to up to 7 years in prison after his 11th conviction for driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Jose Romero expressed regret for his decisions on Thursday and told the judge he’d had a lifelong struggle with alcoholism.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://tinyurl.com/nt8f636 ) District Court Judge Jeffrey Donnell told Romero he didn’t question Romero’s good intentions. However, he pointed to the man’s 15 pages of criminal history relating to alcohol, including 10 previous DWUI convictions.

The charges stem from an incident in June when Romero ran his pickup into his neighbor’s parked vehicle after drinking.
