Teen gets 15 years for deadly DUI crash

SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 3 (UPI) -- A judge in Orange County, Calif., sentenced a teenage boy to 15 years in prison for a 2008 drunken driving crash that claimed the life of a classmate.

Orange County Superior Judge Carla Singer sentenced Milad Moulayi, 18, to the maximum sentence on a second-degree murder conviction Friday for the crash that killed 16-year-old Mackenzie Frazee, The Orange County Register reported.

Testimony during Moulayi's trial showed the then-16-year-old was urged not to drive after downing numerous shots of rum at a late-night party Aug. 28, 2008.

While at least three people refused to ride home with the intoxicated teen, Frazee agreed to go with him.

An accident-reconstruction expert testified at Moulayi's trial that while driving home, the unlicensed teen drove at speeds of more than 100 mph before smashing into a concrete light pole.

The Register said Frazee died of massive blunt-force trauma, while Moulayi was treated for minor injuries and later was found to have a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 percent.
