An intoxicated driver responsible for a fatal crash in Milwaukee last year was recently sentenced to eight years of imprisonment, CBS 58 stated on April 28.
Aside from the eight years of federal jail time, 49-year-old Victor Santiago was also sentenced in the Milwaukee County Courthouse to five years of extended supervision. Santiago had a blood alcohol level of 0.187 on November 23, 2014 when he fatally struck Alfredo de la O, 63.
