Scott Woodington has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for each of the four counts of Aggravated DUI charges he received, according to Pima County Superior Court officials. 

He will serve each sentence concurrently. 

Court officials say Woodington was involved in multiple wrecks in May 2015 and accepted a plea deal.

Scott Woodington pleaded guilty in April to the following counts:

Aggravated DUI while certified ignition interlock device is required, a class four felony.

Aggravated DUI with an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more while certified ignition interlock device is required, a class four felony.

Aggravated DUI having been convicted of two or more prior DUI violations, a class four felony.

Aggravated DUI with an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more, having been convicted of two or more prior DUI violations, a class four felony.

Woodington was previously convicted of DUIS in 2003 and 2007 in Maricopa County. He skipped a court date last year and was arrested in Bullhead City in July.

In May 2015, Woodingon was jailed after striking two motorcyclists. One of those victims, Amy Hill, later died from complications caused by the wreck.
 
According to the Pima County Sheriff's Department, deputies responded to Sahuarita Road and Alvernon Way for a call of a passenger car colliding with a motorcycle.
 
Deputies learned the driver of the passenger car was traveling westbound on Sahuarita Road and trying to pass a motorcycle that was also headed westbound.
 
The driver of the passenger car noticed a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction and moved back into the westbound lane, colliding with the motorcycle.
 
Authorities say that motorcyclist was able to pull off to the side of the road without crashing.
 
The passenger car reportedly continued westbound at a high rate of speed and rear-ended another motorcycle.
 
That motorcyclist was taken to a hospital trauma center with life-threatening injuries.
