SPOTSVYLVANIA, Va. (AP) - A Spotsylvania man has been convicted in a drunken driving case for the 12th time.
Forty-four-year-old David Maron Apraham pleaded guilty Tuesday in Spotsylvania Circuit Court to felony driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license and refusing to take a breath test.
The Free Lance-Star reports that in exchange, prosecutors dropped a felony charge of eluding police.
Apraham faces up to seven years in prison. Sentencing is set for Nov. 6.
Court records show Apraham has six previous DUI convictions in Mississippi and three in Alabama, starting in 1990. His other Virginia convictions were in Williamsburg in 2008 and Colonial Heights in February 2012.

A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
