Drunk driver convicted in passenger's death in Anaheim
Yannis Galanis, 28, was speeding in his GMC pickup while under the influence of alcohol in July on the 5 Freeway in Anaheim, the Orange County district attorney's office said.
Galanis swerved into another lane and smashed into a car, killing his 29-year-old passenger and injuring a female passenger in the other vehicle, prosecutors said.
Galanis has a prior conviction for driving under the influence in 2002, the district attorney's office said.
He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 21 at the Fullerton courthouse and faces up to 11 years and eight months in state prison.
