The sentence has been handed down for the man responsible for a deadly hit-and-run crash in Hillsboro.
Bryan Onderdonk could have taken a plea deal that would have put him behind bars for five years, but he chose not to take it, and will now spend more than six years in prison.
During his sentencing, the judge berated Onderdonk after he continued to refuse to take responsibility for the March crash.
On Dec. 6, jurors found Onderdonk guilty of second-degree manslaughter, driving under the influence of intoxicants, felony hit-and-run, second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and third-degree theft.
Onderdonk drove into a car at the intersection of Southwest Farmington Road and Highway 219 in March, killing 50-year-old Marcos Castillo. Onderdonk was high on meth at the time. Onderdonk ran from the scene and broke into two houses to hide and change clothing.
During Onderdonk's statement to the family and judge, he said he wasn't responsible for Castillo's death.
"We all have a time to die, and this was his time to go," he said.
Castillo was heading to a landscaping job in Hillsboro, and his wife said his death has devastated their family.
"I miss his warmth, his infectious smile, just everything about him," widow Cindy Castillo said. "Just to see him come in the door after work and I would just give him a big hug and a smooch, make him hot chocolate. I just miss him so much."
Onderdonk was sentenced to fines, restitution and six years and three months in prison.
