LAS VEGAS (AP) — A driver who pleaded guilty to DUI charges after police say he plowed his car into a Las Vegas restaurant last spring is sentenced today.

Gage James Lindsey, 20, received a sentence of six to 20 years in prison this morning at the Regional Justice Center.

Prosecutors say Lindsey was under the influence of prescription drugs, marijuana and synthetic spice when he crashed into the Egg & I restaurant west of the Las Vegas Strip on April 1, 2013.

Ten people were injured.

Lindsey pleaded guilty in May to two charges of felony DUI causing substantial bodily harm. Prosecutors dropped four other charges as part of a plea deal.

Lindsey's attorney, Sean Sullivan, had said he would seek a two-to-20 year prison term at sentencing.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
