GEORGETOWN (August 11, 2010)—A state district judge in Georgetown has sentenced Bobby Joe Stovall, 52, of Round Rock to life in prison after Stovall’s ninth conviction for driving while intoxicated.
Stovall was sentenced Tuesday in a 2009 DWI wreck that left his passenger hurt.
Round Rock police said Stovall, who was convicted last month, had a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit for driving at the time.
His previous DWI convictions were in Collin, Dewitt, Nueces, Galveston, Jackson and Goliad counties.
Williamson County authorities said Stovall was convicted of burglary of a habitation in 1994 and credit card abuse in 1987 and sentenced to prison.
He was convicted of possession of a controlled substance in 1994 and put on probation.
Stovall also has convictions for theft and making alcohol available to a minor.
