DENVER | A Colorado man has been sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to his 13th DUI.
Denver prosecutors say Maynard Rome compiled the DUIs in four Colorado counties and in South Dakota’s Lawrence County since 1986.
His latest case involves a traffic accident in Denver in June. District Attorney Beth McCann’s office said in a statement Wednesday that it’s a miracle that Rome didn’t kill anyone over that time.
Rome, 60, pleaded guilty to the latest count in October and was sentenced on Friday by Denver District Court Judge Michael Vallejos.
McCann noted that December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month.
