LAS VEGAS (AP) — A driver who pleaded guilty to DUI charges after police say he plowed his car into a Las Vegas restaurant last spring is scheduled to be sentenced.

Twenty-year-old Gage James Lindsey faces up to 40 years in prison at a sentencing hearing set for Thursday.

Prosecutors say Lindsey was under the influence of prescription drugs, marijuana and synthetic spice when he crashed into the Egg & I restaurant west of the Las Vegas Strip on April 1, 2013.

Ten people were injured.

Lindsey pleaded guilty in May to two charges of felony DUI causing substantial bodily harm. Prosecutors dropped four other charges as part of a plea deal.

Lindsey's attorney, Sean Sullivan, has said he'll seek a two-to-20 year prison term at sentencing.
