Sept. 24, 2013

Marcel Turner pleaded guilty to eight different charges, including distribution of cocaine, eluding police, and failure to stop at an accident.

A judge sentenced Turner on Tuesday to serve six and a half years in prison.

Turner was accused of leading Charlottesville police officers on a chase back in April. An officer had tried to pull Turner over on 5th Street. Turner then turned onto Meridian Street, where he hit two police cruisers with his car, injuring an officer.
