A man who invoked his policeman father's name at a crowd of witnesses after killing a young woman with his car on a north China university campus has been sentenced to six years in jail, court authorities said Sunday.

Li Qiming, 23, pled guilty to drunk driving and vehicular manslaughter, the People's Court in Wangdu County said in a statement Sunday morning.

Li stood first trial at the court last Wednesday, more than three months after he hit two college girls, killing one and seriously injuring the other, on the campus of Hebei University on the evening of Oct. 16.

He gained nationwide notoriety by shouting "Sue me if you dare, my father is Li Gang."

Li Gang was deputy chief of the public security bureau in Baoding city's Beishi district, where the university is located.

"My father is Li Gang" became infamous as a catch phrase, which netizens worked into classical poetry, jokes and doggerel to vent their fury over the vicious words and behavior of the privileged and the children of power and wealth.
