10 years sounds right to me. The guy driving the Camry that killed people on Snelling Ave got almost as much, and he was sober.

With all the death, destruction, grief and sorrow caused by drunk drivers, I cannot understand how a person that is driving drunk and kills someone is not qualified to stand trial for premeditated murder and serve life in prison. Laws should change to reflect the seriousness of driving drunk.

I agree change, if you fire a gun into a crowd, but didn't mean to kill, you will be charged with murder anyway. If you drive drunk, but didn't mean to kill, chances are you will be let off.
