A Champaign man with a long history of felony convictions was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison for his third driving under the influence conviction.
Kenneth Dalton, 43, who listed an address in the 2600 block of Campbell Drive, was convicted by a Champaign County jury in April of driving while drunk in Savoy on Dec. 24, 2010.
Assistant State's Attorney Andrea Bergstrom said a Champaign County sheriff's deputy stopped Dalton for speeding on U.S. 45 near Church Street. He smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot and glassy eyes, and an open 24-ounce beer can in his vehicle.
On field sobriety tests, he showed signs of impairment and urinated on himself while trying to perform the tasks. He refused to submit to chemical testing, Bergstrom said.
