EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – An Evansville man has been sentenced for a crash that killed three people, including two children.
A judge sentenced Frederick McFarland to 15 years in prison for three counts of resisting law enforcement level 3 felony, and 5 years for resisting law enforcement level 5 felony.
The charges have been ordered to run concurrent, meaning they’ll be served at the same time.
McFarland was sentenced in a Vanderburgh County courtroom Wednesday morning, nearly three years after leading police on a high-speed chase. The November 2017 chase resulted in a collision with another vehicle being driven by Janae Carter.
Carter’s two children, 2-year-old Princess, and 7-month-old Prince Carter, were both killed.
Their father, Terence Barker also died as a result of his injuries from the crash.
In November 2019, Mcfarland entered a guilty plea on all felony counts related to the crash and fleeing law enforcement.
