CONROE, Texas (AP) - A Houston-area man must serve 50 years in prison for his sixth drunken driving conviction.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office says 45-year-old Ronnie Paul Hobgood Jr. of Magnolia agreed to a plea agreement over his February arrest.

The Conroe Courier (https://bit.ly/2aZ79uW ) reports Hobgood, who could have faced up to life in prison if convicted at trial, had a blood alcohol level of more than three times the legal limit for driving. His truck hit two vehicles before Hobgood was arrested.

Records show Hobgood, who was sentenced Monday in Conroe, served two prison terms for a series of DWI convictions since 1990. The violations included one death related to drunken driving by Hobgood. He served probation for the other three convictions.
