McFall man sentenced to 4-years with Missouri Department of Corrections

Prison Sentence

A McFall man charged after an alleged pursuit in Harrison and Daviess counties earlier this month was sentenced in Division One of Harrison County Circuit Court Thursday after waiving formal arraignment and pleading guilty.

Online court information shows William Stanley Perkins was sentenced to four years in the Missouri Department of Corrections on felony charges of first degree tampering with a motor vehicle and driving while revoked or suspended. He was also sentenced to 30 days in jail on misdemeanor charges of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia—prior drug offense and exceeding the posted speed limit.

The sentences are to run concurrently with each other and all other cases. Perkins was given credit for jail time awaiting disposition of the charge. Four counts were dismissed.

Costs were assessed against him, and judgment was rendered against him for the benefit of the Crime Victims Compensation Fund for $46.

A probable cause statement identified Perkins as the driver of a car that traveled at speeds up to 110 miles per hour, crossed the center line, and failed to signal several times before losing control and crashing on Kodiak Road west of Highway 13.

Perkins reportedly fled on foot about 95 yards before he was taken into custody.
