After the Kansas Court of Appeals gave a mixed ruling for a 23-year-old Hutchinson man convicted of attempted manufacture of methamphetamine and attempted 2nd degree murder, he now wants his sentenced corrected.
Paul Stotts is serving 304-months after being convicted of those two felonies, felony flee/elude and several other felony and misdemeanor charges. He is scheduled to be in District Court on Monday over the issue of sentencing.
Stotts was found guilty of attempted 2nd degree murder for intentionally crashing his vehicle into another, badly injuring the other driver. He was also found guilty of having items consistent with a meth lab inside his vehicle, two counts of aggravated battery, and several counts of flee and elude.
The case has to do with the 24-minute high speed chase through both South Hutchinson and Hutchinson which ultimately ended with the crash on K-61 back on March 26th of 2007.
