FALMOUTH, KY (FOX19) -- A part-time pastor and truck driver will spend 20 years in prison after a deadly DUI crash in Pendleton County .

41-year-old Daniel Gabbard received his sentence this afternoon at the Pendleton County Circuit Court after a judge accepted the jury's recommendation.

Prosecutors say that Gabbard drunk more that a dozen beers and drove his semi truck over 300 miles from Ohio to Kentucky before hitting and killing Pendleton County Prosecutor Doug Wright in June of last year.

 Gabbard was convicted of Wanton Murder in March. He will have to serve at least 17 years before he will be eligible for parole.
