A Virginia who pleaded guilty to drunken driving for the 12th time received the maximum penalty, and there might be more DUI convictions to come.

Spotsylvania resident David Marion Apraham, 44, was sentenced to seven years in prison in Spotsylvania Circuit Court on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

Apraham had multiple DUI convictions in Virginia, Alabama and Mississippi before pleading guilty in August to a DUI, driving on a suspended license and refusing to take a breath test.

More DUI charges against Apraham are pending in North Carolina and Washington state.

Apraham was arrested on the latest charges last November in Virginia while he was supposed to be on house arrest in Mississippi, according to Spotsylvania County deputy prosecutor Tom Shaia.
