A Comanche County man was given the maximum sentence Tuesday after admitting he was driving drunk in a July 2011 accident that left one man seriously injured.
Jose Porfirio Medina-Huerta, 66, pleaded guilty to intoxication assault with serious bodily injury, a third-degree felony, in the 266th Judicial District Court and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
The victim, an area man who was a passenger in the car that was struck by Medina-Huerta, reportedly lost one of his eyes, according to District Attorney Jason Cashon.
Medina-Huerta waived his right to a jury trial.
Sources say a pregnant woman who was riding in the same car as the victim had a miscarriage following the accident, but that alleged victim did not report the loss to law enforcement officials, Cashon said.
