Colorado carjacker gets 160 years for crime spree caught on live TV

DENVER | BY KEITH COFFMAN

A Colorado man convicted of carjacking three vehicles, including one with a 4-year-old boy inside, was sentenced on Friday to 160 years in prison for the high-speed chase that was seen on live TV, prosecutors said.

Ryan Stone, 30, was found guilty in April of 11 felonies including attempted manslaughter and first-degree assault for injuries sustained by a police officer who tried to stop him, the Douglas County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.

Stone told Douglas County District Court Judge Paul King he was remorseful for the March 2014 crime spree that spanned five counties, covered 75 miles, and was broadcast live by a Denver news station's helicopter.

The pursuit began in the town of Longmont, about 30 miles north of Denver, where Stone, who was wanted for failing to appear in court on drug charges, stole a sport-utility vehicle outside a convenience store.

A 4-year-old boy was in the SUV when Stone sped away, heading south on Interstate 25 toward Denver and leading police on a chase at speeds of over 100 miles per hour, authorities said.

1. I watched the news report about it

on the Denver News. He wasn't so cocky when the judge sentenced him. He cried and cried. Poor him. Yeah, right.
