Man sentenced to 9 years for aggravated DUI

TUSCOLA - An Illinois man has been sentenced to nine years in prison for killing a motorcyclist while driving drunk.

On Monday Edgar Maza, 29, was sentenced for aggravated DUI in the October death of Harold Adamson, 47.  Maza pleaded guilty in July.

According to an Illinois State Police accident reconstruction specialist, Maza was driving at about 107 miles per hour before the crash.  At a hospital, his blood-alcohol content was measured to be 0.132, well over Illinois' legal limit of 0.08.

Maza was given credit for 311 days served in the Douglas County Jail, and is ordered to make $11,000 restitution to Adamson's family.
