KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A northeast Kansas man has been sentenced to 10 years for his role in a carjacking that led to a chase at up to 112 miles per hour.
The U.S. Attorney's office says Terry Tillman, 26, of Kansas City, Kan., was sentenced Tuesday in federal court. Tillman pleaded guilty in August to one count of carjacking.
The crime took place May 26 at a gas station in Kansas City, Kan. Tillman admitted he and another man robbed a minivan driver of a wallet and keys while a third co-defendant held the driver at gunpoint.
The men drove off in the minivan and led police on a 17-minute chase before the vehicle wrecked in a plowed field in Basehor. Three other defendants are awaiting sentence. Two more are still facing trials.
