The drunk driver who killed Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson in February just got sentenced to 16 years in prison.
As we previously reported, 26-year-old Jackson and his Uber driver were hit by a pickup truck while they were standing on the shoulder of a highway in Indiana.
37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Zavala pled guilty to 2 counts of "DUI that causes the death of another" in July.
Today, he faced a judge in Indiana ... and was hit with the maximum penalty -- 16 years in state prison.
After his prison sentence, Orrego-Zavala -- who's a Guatemalan citizen in America illegally -- faces deportation.
The case became a national story when President Trump tweeted that it was "disgraceful" that Jackson was killed by a man who was in the U.S. illegally.
Orrego-Zavala is currently locked up ... and ain't goin' anywhere for 16 years.
