(STMW) — A Cook County judge Friday sentenced a former North Chicago cop to 10 years in prison for a wrong-way drunk-driving crash on Lake Shore Drive last year.

Prosecutors said Terrell Garrett, an off-duty North Chicago officer, was traveling at 60 mph in a 45 mph zone in March 2013, heading north in the southbound lanes, when his SUV crashed into a Jeep, killing Joaquin Garcia, 25, and his friend, Fabian Torres, 27.
