HOULTON — A 56-year-old northern Maine man is going to prison for nearly six years following his 12th conviction for operating under the influence and ninth conviction for driving after his license had been revoked.

Milo White, of Weston, was sentenced Wednesday in Aroostook County Superior Court in Houlton.

The Bangor Daily News says White’s latest conviction stemmed from an accident in which White crashed his all-terrain vehicle in July 2010.

Assistant District Attorney Kurt Kafferlin said White’s criminal record dates to 1973 and includes charges of operating without a license, operating after suspension, assault, criminal threatening, breaking and entering and larceny. He has served more than 13 years in prison.

Kafferlin said White hasn’t had a valid driver’s license in 27 years, but he continues to drink and drive.
