A Colorado Springs man has been sentenced to three years in prison after his 10th DUI conviction.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that 54-year-old William Randall Nance was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to drunken driving.

His most recent DUI charge comes from a Labor Day crash in Colorado Springs.

Nance faced up to six years in prison under recently toughened DUI laws. The judge could also have imposed probation or a community-based incarceration program.

Nance's attorney couldn't be reached for comment.

Tougher DUI penalties went into effect in August under a bill making a fourth DUI a felony punishable by two to six years in prison and a hefty fine.
