HOUSTON, TX -- A Montgomery County judge gives a man life in prison after being found guilty of his 9th DWI.

Donald Middleton's DWI convictions started in 1980.

The 9th and last time came in May of last year. That's when Middleton struck a 16-year old boy coming home from work head on. Middleton tried to flee the scene but was unable to get away. Surveillance cameras show that he was intoxicated.

Middleton still had a valid driver's license when he was arrested for the 9th time.

Now he's off the streets for good.
