A 21-year-old San Marcos man was sentenced Tuesday to nearly five years in prison for driving San Diego DUI – drunk and causing six crashes as he led authorities on a high-speed chase with his year-old daughter in the backseat, San Diego DUI lawyers learned.
Luis Gomez, also known as Luis Umberto Perez, pleaded guilty April 1 to felony San Diego DUI, child abuse and evading police with reckless driving, along with misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run, driving with a suspended license and being an unlicensed driver, according to San Diego DUI records.
Gomez, 21, who has five prior DUI convictions on his record, was sentenced to the 56-month term by Vista Superior Court Judge Daniel Goldstein, say San Diego DUI attorneys who were present.
During a half-mile pursuit the night of Feb. 11 that reached speeds of more than 100 mph, Gomez slammed into two vehicles in San Marcos, three on state Route 78 and one in Vista before being arrested near the corner of Hibiscus and Sycamore avenues in Vista, said San Diego DUI lawyer sources.
No one was injured in any of the San Diego DUI crashes, San Diego DUI attorneys said.
