WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a spree that ended in him nearly running over two police officers in a stolen car.

The Republican reports (https://bit.ly/2kAHZ9O) that 22-year-old Cristien Connors, of Worcester, pleaded guilty to several charges including breaking and entering in the nighttime and larceny of a motor vehicle. Connors admitted to driving toward two Worcester police officers in a stolen car after they tried to conduct a traffic stop in 2015.

Connors was shot twice as he charged the officers.

Prosecutors say Connors stole numerous items and a car from different homes in Douglas and Grafton before encountering police.

A judge sentenced Connors to no less than 7-to-10 years in prison. Connors was also ordered to serve two years’ probation after being released.
