Derek Hopson, 28, of Howland, pleaded guilty to an indictment charging him with receiving stolen property, failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer and tampering with evidence.
Hopson, along with the passenger of the car Derrick Bennett, was arrested May 25 after a 120+ mph chase involving a stolen vehicle, according to a police report. During the chase, the vehicle went off-road near Lordstown Schools, continuing through the grass of the school grounds before eventually pulling over on Rosetta Boulevard, where the two men took off on foot.
Police also found a handgun they believe one of the suspects threw out the window near Lordstown Schools, according to the report.
Bennett pled guilty to a reduced charge of disorderly conduct with reasonable warning back in July and was sentenced to a maximum of 30 days in jail and one year of probation.
Hopson was sentenced to 27 months in prison.
