MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The drunken driver convicted in the 2000 death of Minnesota Timberwolves swingman Malik Sealy was sentenced Thursday to another eight years in prison on a separate drunken driving charge.
Souksangouane Phengsene of Minneapolis was charged with first-degree driving while impaired. He admitted he had been drinking beer before police pulled him over on March 30. Prosecutors say his blood alcohol level was 0.20 percent. That's 2.5 times the legal limit.
Hennepin County Judge Steven Pihlaja sentenced Phengsene to 54 months in prison for driving while impaired, and another 42 months for violating the terms of his probation on a previous conviction. The sentences will run consecutively, for a total of eight years.
