Andrew Gallo, the 24-year-old man convicted in September of killing Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others in an April 2009 drunk driver crash in Fullerton, "has been sentenced to 51 years to life in prison," according to KTLA. Gallo's attorney asked for leniency on grounds he was "immature and the product of a broken home," which was also the root of his alcoholism. Gallo is likely to appeal his sentence.
