A Bell County judge on Friday sentenced a Killeen man to prison time after he injured a man in 2017 while driving a vehicle while intoxicated, officials said on Monday.
Andre Marquis Thomas was sentenced by Judge Paul LePak to 15 years in prison after an accident on Nov. 16, 2017, which left a man hurt, said Adela Gomez with the Bell County District Attorney's Office.
He was sentenced to another 15 years in prison for possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, said Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza.
Thomas operated "a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated by reason of the introduction of a controlled substance, a drug or dangerous drug into the body, and did by reason of such intoxication cause serious bodily injury to another..." according to the grand jury indictment.
Thomas had several previous convictions in 2007 on possession and possession with intent to deliver charges, the indictment stated.
