GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - In a story March 24 about pleas in a car-theft and chase in suburban Denver, The Associated Press reported erroneously, based on information provided by prosecutors, one of the charges to which Christopher Sullivan pleaded guilty. The charge was pandering, not pandering of a minor.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Man charged after car-theft chase near Denver pleads guilty

Man accused in wild car-theft, hijacking spree near Denver pleads guilty to multiple charges

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A man accused of hijacking one car, stealing two others and trying to take more during a wild chase west of Denver has pleaded guilty to multiple charges.

The Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office says 37-year-old Christopher Sullivan pleaded guilty Tuesday to 47 counts, including aggravated robbery, assault, menacing and motor vehicle theft. He’s set for sentencing April 27.

Police say the string of thefts began July 23 when Sullivan and a 17-year-old girl fled a traffic stop. Over the next two hours, they hijacked a car, stole a pickup truck and crashed through a closed garage door in a stolen SUV.

The chase ended when a deputy and a passerby wrestled him to the ground on a highway.

Sullivan was traveling with a 17-year-old girl at the time and also pleaded guilty to pandering.
