A Lima man who led State Highway Patrol troopers on a high speed chase through southern Wood County last year was sentenced to 35 months in prison on Friday.
Rayvon L. Holmen, 19, was sentenced by Wood County Common Pleas Judge Alan Mayberry on charges of failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, a third-degree felony, and possession of cocaine, a fifth-degree felony. A third charge of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
"We are lucky we aren't here on a more serious charge that you injured or killed someone," Mayberry told Holmen.
Holmen admitted in court he led troopers on a high-speed chase on Nov. 8, with speeds reaching over 100 mph on Interstate 75, near the Ohio 25/Cygnet exit. During the chase, he drove the vehicle on the shoulder of the highway and also committed numerous other moving violations in the process.
The chase lasted about 10 minutes and covered a three-mile span.
Mayberry also imposed a five-year driver's license suspension as part of the sentence.
"Despite the fact that you are 19, you have the record of a 30-year-old," Mayberry told Holmen.
