A man responsible for a fatal drunken-driving crash will spend the next decade in prison.
Alfredo Gomez, 40, pleaded guilty to 11 counts, including manslaughter, for the May 2012 death of Gail Andrew “Andy” Miller. He was sentenced to 10½ years in prison on Tuesday.
Gomez was driving a pickup truck on westbound Valencia Road when he ran a red light and smashed into Miller’s car. Court records show Gomez had a blood alcohol content of more than 0.2. The state legal limit is .08.
Numerous friends and family members gave emotional testimonials about Miller at the sentencing.
Miller, 57, was a chef for the food services vendor at Raytheon. He was a regular volunteer at many community events including the Tucson Celtic Festival.
Pima County Superior Court Judge Kenneth Lee also sentenced Gomez to five years’ probation.
