A repeat drunken driver convicted for killing a North Texas boy was sentenced to 50 years in prison.

The judge handed down Stewart Richardson’s sentence Wednesday morning.

Richardson slammed into an Arlington family’s van in 2009. The impact left 2-year-old Abdallah Khader with brain damage.

Khader lived in a vegetative state until he died last year at the age of 8.

In her victim impact statement, Khader’s mother addressed Richardson.

“They’re saying how remorseful you are. I honestly feel you are not. My son got the death sentence. You got life,” she said.

Richardson had at least seven previous DWI convictions and pleaded guilty in this case.
