Back in 2021, former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III was charged with DUI resulting in death after traveling 156 mph in Vegas while intoxicated, and hitting and killing 23-year-old Tina Tintor and her dog after Tintor’s car burst into flames.

And now, the 24-year-old has been sentenced to three to 10 years in prison, just over an hour ago in a Las Vegas courtroom, according to TMZ Sports.

Ruggs issued an apology to Tintor’s family during the hearing:

“To the parents and family of Ms. Tintor, I sincerely apologize for the pain and suffering my actions the morning of Nov. 2, 2021 have caused you, your family and those who knew Ms. Tina and Max.

I let my family, my teammates, and those who believed in me down with my actions and hurt so many.”

He also noted that there was “no excuse” for his actions.

Ruggs was initially facing more than 50 years in prison for the decision that led to the deaths of Tintor and her dog.

However, back in May he pled guilty to one felony count of DUI resulting in death and one misdemeanor count of vehicular manslaughter in exchange for a prison sentence that would not exceed three to 10 years.

He will now be eligible for parole following his third year in prison.

Ruggs was a former standout at the University of Alabama, and was taken in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Raiders.

He started 19 games in his two seasons with the team.
