Drunk Driver Gets Life for Killing Angels Pitcher

12/22/2010 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The drunk driver who killed L.A. Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart last year in a high-speed crash just got the book thrown at him -- 51 years to LIFE in prison.

Nick Adenhart
As we first reported, 24-year-old Andrew Gallo (left) blew through a red light in his minivan in April '09 -- t-boning Nick's car ... killing Nick and two others.

Gallo was convicted on three counts of second-degree murder in September. According to the Orange County D.A., Gallo's BAC was nearly three times the legal limit.

Before being sentenced this AM, Gallo apologized to the victims' families.

Donte Stallworth got 24 days in jail for killing a pedestrian!

Leonard Little had twice the blood alcohol legal limit when he ran a red light while driving drunk and collided with another car, killing the driver who was a mother. He got 90 days in jail.

Then, 6 years later, Leonard Little was arrested for driving drunk again!!!! He was eventually acquitted despite failing three field sobriety tests and refusing a breathalyzer test!!!!!

Yes, the USA justice system is WRONG!!!! More importantly, the morals of the U.S. people are messed-up when they treat famous, rich people favorably compared to a poor man when they commit the same exact crime!!!

DANG! The 28 yr old who killed my son (.09 AND Cocaine & pot in blood) did less than 3 yrs AND he was on probation for a DUI 2 yrs prior. Our state/WA DESTROYS accident reports after 7 yrs, so we were unable to find anything about a 10 yr prior accident that may have paralyzed one of the other drivers/victims. Still don't know their names 6+ yrs later.

Hey Superman, this is nothing new. Celebrities used to have it even easier years ago. Throughout the years, celebrities and sports figures have gotten away with murder, that is unless you're Fatty Arbuckle. If you don't know who he is, look it up.

You know what's sad about this? Lindsey practically gets a slap on the wrist and even when she gets an appropriate sentence it's reduced to nothing. Then she just keeps going back to her old ways over and over and before you know it she's going to end up killing a bunch of people just like this guy.

Whats so tragic is that both parties were WAY over the legal limit. Sadly they all learned a very hard lesson. The 2 survivors in the car should be out speaking against drunk driving to honor their friends life. What a tragedy all around.
