LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A judge handed down a prison sentence to a man who was convicted in a DUI crash that killed a 19-year-old Las Vegas man last year.

On Thursday, Paul Adams, 46, was ordered to serve seven-and-a-half to 20 years in prison for his role in the July 22 crash. He was also ordered to pay $183,000 in restitution.

According to police, Adams was in a Mercedes Benz that rear-ended a Kia Rondo near Charleston and Rampart boulevards. The crash resulted in the death of Francis Manalo, who was in the Kia.
