LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A former Laramie taxi driver who allegedly drove drunk and injured his passenger has been sentenced to at least six years in prison.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/1Hd9VHG ) 63-year-old James Rollman was sentenced Monday to serve six to nine years in prison. He had pleaded guilty to driving under the influence.

Rollman was arrested in March following an accident in which his passenger suffered a neck fracture and was hospitalized.

During Rollman’s arraignment in April, a prosecuting attorney said Rollman’s blood alcohol was more than twice the blood alcohol limit for commercial drivers in Wyoming.

At Rollman’s sentencing, the victim said the injury caused him great stress both socially and financially.



Rollman said he was sorry that someone else got hurt because of his actions.
