ANCHORAGE (AP) A man who rammed his pickup truck into a house in Anchorage earlier this year was sentenced Thursday to 470 days in jail.
Dennis Proctor, 44, pleaded no contest in Anchorage District Court to a charge of driving while his license was suspended.
Judge Brian Clark sentenced him to 270 days in jail on that charge said Jo-Ann Chung, an assistant municipal attorney. The judge also ordered Proctor to serve another 200 days from previously suspended sentences for driving without a license and reckless driving.
Proctor slammed his Dodge pickup into a Muldoon home in late May, thrusting its nose into a bedroom with one wheel spinning just inches over the head of a toddler, according to an account at the time by the toddler's mother.
Proctor told police he drove off the road because he had a seizure, Chung said.
His license also was suspended for another three years, Chung said.
Proctor has five prior convictions for driving while his license was revoked or suspended.
