CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Cheyenne man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for his ninth drunken driving charge.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1PsD7LT ) that 50-year-old Paul Lucero asked a Laramie County District Court judge to sentence him to probation for his felony DUI charge so he could complete a residential treatment program. In doing so, he went against his plea agreement that would have limited the prosecution’s recommendation to three to five years.

As such, the Laramie County assistant district attorney recommended the maximum sentence of seven years, which the judge imposed.

A DUI charge can be a felony if the defendant has committed at least three other DUIs in the previous 10 years.
