Judge sentences Weatherford man to life in prison for 10th DWI 

January 23, 2016 by Randy Keck

From the Parker County District Attorney’s Office

District Judge Craig Towson sentenced a Weatherford man who pled guilty to his 10th driving while intoxicated offense to life in prison in a case that concluded late Wednesday afternoon in Weatherford.

“With a 0.303 blood alcohol test, you’re a second away from hurting someone really badly,” Towson told Ivy Ray Eberhardt, 62, as he announced the sentence. “Part of my job is to protect the citizens of Parker County and the only way that I can think of to do that from somebody that has 12 DWI arrests and 10 DWI convictions is to put you in a place that you can’t drive for as long as I possibly can.”
