Millsap man sent to prison on seventh DWI conviction

A Parker County jury convicted a 61-year-old Millsap man of felony driving while intoxicated and methamphetamine possession charges and sentenced him to 80 and 20 years in prison in a trial that concluded Friday afternoon in district court in Weatherford.

Toni Joe Whitehead was pulled over last July for driving drunk in far western Parker County–it was his seventh DWI conviction and this will be his fourth trip to prison.

Jurors deliberated for about an hour and a half before convicting Whitehead. They took about two hours to come to a resolution on his punishment.

After he serves the rest of the 13 year sentence for which he was on parole, Whitehead will be eligible for parole after he has served 15 years in prison on the new cases.
