Hattiesburg woman who led police on chase gets 20 year sentence

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg woman has been sentenced to 20 years for aggravated assault on an officer, attempted aggravated assault on an officer, motor vehicle theft and felony fleeing.

Jones County District Attorney Tony Buckley said Angela Windham, 29, pled guilty in court to the charges on Tuesday. Windham will serve 10 years in jail, 5 years on post-release supervision, and have 5 suspended upon successful completion of the sentence.

According to the Ellisville Police Department, Windham led officers on a car chase back in March 10, 2014 after being spotted driving a stolen Moselle vehicle. During the chase police said Windham ran into one Ellisville police vehicle and one Jones County deputy vehicle. The chase ended with a flat tire and Windham being charged with felony fleeing, suspended drivers license, two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, no insurance, driving under the influence, leaving the scene unattended, and grand larceny. Her bond was set at $135,000.

The district attorney's office said Windham had no recollection of anything she was charged for doing last year in March.
