Audy Molina-Colindres was sentenced Monday by Judge Jean Kerr Maurer to just over 4 years in prison after pleading guilty to criminal negligent homicide and driving under the influence of intoxicants.

A grand jury originally indicted him on charges that included second-degree manslaughter, DUII and reckless driving following the Dec. 30, 2013 crash that killed Dmitriy Maksimov.

Maksimov was the passenger in Molina-Colindres’ vehicle, police said.

Officers with the Portland Police Bureau Major Crash Team determined that Molina-Colindres was headed southbound on Southwest Barbur Boulevard when he lost control near Southwest Miles Street.

According to deputy district attorney Rebecca Freeman, Molina-Colindres had a blood alcohol level of .13 following the crash.

Molina-Colindres apologized in court Monday afternoon.

The victim’s brother was in court, but declined to make a formal statement.
