A Gilmer man has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison after being convicted for a third D.W.I. charge. 35 year old Patrick Howell was found guilty by a jury Wednesday of driving while intoxicated back on October 5th of 2002.

   Howell also has two prior felony convictions for auto theft and forgery from the 1980's which enhanced the sentence.
