A Kearney man has been given up to 10 years in prison for theft and leading officers on a chase through Kearney.

24-year-old Bret Shatters was sentenced earlier this week. His two felony
sentences of 20 to 60 months are to be served consecutively; a misdemeanor sentence of three months will be served at the same time. Two other misdemeanor charges were dismissed in exchange for
Shatters' pleas.

Prosecutors say that on Nov. 26, Shatters led officers on a chase through town and north on Nebraska Highway 10. The speeds reached up to 110 mph on the highway.

The chase ended when the stolen car Shatters was driving spun into a ditch. He fled on foot but was soon captured.
