A former Bedford County sheriff's investigator has been convicted of charges stemming from a wrong-way driving incident in Campbell County.
Media outlets report that Campbell County Circuit Court Judge John Cook found 31-year-old Joshua Hubbard guilty of felony eluding police at a bench trial Thursday.
Hubbard pleaded guilty to misdemeanor driving while intoxicated. He faces up to five years in prison on the felony charge and a year in jail on the DWI charge.
Police arrested Hubbard on March 27, 2011 after he was spotted driving an unmarked patrol car in the wrong direction on U.S. 29 between Lynchburg and Altavista. He was off duty at the time. Hubbard was fired five days later.
A sentencing date hasn't been set.
