HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) - A 34-year-old Florida man who led officers on a chase through three southern Nebraska counties has been sentenced to prison.

On Thursday Adams County District Judge Terri Harder gave Christopher White 14 to 15 years in prison. White had pleaded no contest and was convicted of methamphetamine distribution, attempted possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and operating a vehicle to avoid arrest. His companion on March 10 was 31-year-old Keri Ansley, who was sentenced last month to time served. Both are from Milton, Florida.

Prosecutors say the two tried to evade officers while racing through Adams, Kearney and Webster counties. The chase ended when the couple’s vehicle ran out of gas. Officers say the two had a firearm and methamphetamine with them.
