HILLSBORO, Ore. -- Bryan Onderdonk will spend the next six years and three months in prison and will have his driving privileges permanently revoked for the crime of driving under the influence, killing another driver and running from the scene.

Onderdonk, 29, was sentenced Tuesday in Washington County court. The formal charges of which he was convicted are second-degree manslaughter, DUII, felony hit-and-run, burglary, theft and multiple counts of criminal mischief.

The fatal hit-and-run crash occurred last March 24 at Oregon Highway 219 and SW Farmington Boulevard just south of Hillsboro. Marcos Castillo, 50, of Vancouver was driving through that intersection when Onderdonk T-boned his vehicle. Castillo was dead by the time first responders arrived.

Onderdonk had traces of methamphetamine in his system after his arrest.

The prosecutor, Deputy District Attorney Jason Weiner, urged Circuit Judge Charles Bailey to hand down the longest-possible sentence. Under Measure 11, the crime of second-degree manslaughter carries a mandatory sentence of six years and three months.
