MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A Long Island man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in a drunken driving crash that killed a father of three last year.

Newsday ( ) says Brian P. Daly of Valley Stream is expected to get 12 years in prison when he is sentenced in July.

The defendant left a bar and ran a red light in Franklin Square in February 2013. He slammed into a minivan driven by Christopher DeCrescito.

The victim's widow couldn't be in court Monday. Family friend Rose DeVito said Denise DeCrescito was hospitalized after a stress-related flare-up of multiple sclerosis symptoms.

The prosecutor says DeCrescito plans to speak at the sentencing.

Besides manslaughter and driving while intoxicated, Daly pleaded guilty to assault and criminal possession of a controlled substance, cocaine.
