JUNEAU, Alaska - A 27-year-old man who led Juneau police on a high-speed chase through the Mendenhall Valley has been sentenced to five years and one month in prison.

Devin W. Moorhouse was sentenced Monday in Juneau Superior Court after a plea agreement.

He pleaded guilty to one felony count of failing to stop for a peace officer and misdemeanor counts of assault and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Moorhouse was arrested May 8 after he drove through several red lights, grazed a patrol car and crashed into a tree. His blood alcohol content was measured at 0.327 percent.

District Attorney David Brower says Moorhouse ignored pleas to stop by 33-year-old Corena Willard, a passenger injured in the crash.

Brower says Moorhouse has prior felony convictions for burglary and probation violation.
