Guam - Endy Timoti was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole as well as three years to be served concurrently for a felony DUI charge. In June he pleaded guilty in the Superior Court to murder and driving under the influence of alcohol.
Timoti's blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit when he was driving in Agat in March last year and hit and killed 43-year-old Navy sailor Anna Sterling who was operating her motorcycle at the time.
He had just appeared in DUI court earlier that same day and had two prior DUI convictions and was on pre-trial release for another DUI case. Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas says "this stiff sentence sends a strong message to those repeat-DUI offenders that we will not tolerate their actions, that they will be punished and taken off our streets for a long time."
