PR man who couldn't stay sober gets 110 month sentence
A Park Rapids man who couldn't refrain from alcohol and killed his friend in a drunken brawl in 2010 is back behind bars for a long time.
Judge Paul Rasmussen said he was disappointed in Luis Candelaria, 49, when the judge imposed a stayed adjudication of 110 months Tuesday in the 2010 death of Richard Hoskins.
At the time of Hoskins' death, Candelaria was under a court order not to drink.
"He's a public safety threat," said Hubbard County attorney Don Dearstyne in court Tuesday.
