LAS VEGAS (AP) _ A man was sentenced to at least 28 years in prison Friday for causing the drunken driving wreck that paralyzed the winner of the world's largest slot machine jackpot and killed her sister.

Judge Valorie Vega sobbed as she sentenced Clark Morse to 28 to 92 years in prison, saying, ``The system had bent over backward to try and help Mr. Morse.''

Morse, 58, was convicted last month of involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence and other offenses. It was his 20th arrest and at least his fifth drunken-driving conviction.

Just weeks before the March 2000 crash, Cynthia Jay-Brennan won a $35 million jackpot. The accident killed her sister, Lela Jay, 45.

``Nobody won today,'' said Jay-Brennan, a 38-year-old quadriplegic. ``Everybody lost. I'm just glad he can't do this to anybody else.''

Morse said: ``I'm really sorry in my heart. I wish it'd been me. I'm so sorry.''
