Man Gets 75 Years in Prison for DWI

After numerous arrests for driving while intoxicated, a Gladewater man has been sentenced to a long prison term. 35 year old Ralph Howes was found guilty on Thursday of driving while intoxicated back in April. It took a jury less than 30 minutes to convict him, and he was sentenced to 75 years in prison.

Howes was also previously convicted of involuntary manslaughter connected to a drunk driving charge. Howes has been arrested for driving while intoxicated on four separate occasions.
