NEWPORT, Vt. (WCAX) An Orleans County serial drunk driver will serve 6-15 years in prison.

Harry Norway was sentenced last month according to the Orleans County State's Attorney's Office.

Norway was recently convicted of his 7th DUI, attempting to elude , false pretenses, and driving with license suspended. Prosecutors say they pushed the judge for a harsher sentence.

"Serial drunk drivers routinely risk the lives of the citizens of Orleans County. We have no choice but to protect the citizens and incapacitate this type of offender," State's Attorney Jennifer Barrett said in a statement.
