VANDERBURGH COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT)- Sheriff Dave Wedding expected to testify on house bill 1097, which increases “fleeing” during pursuits to a level 5 felony.
This would also require convicted offenders to serve at least 75% of their sentence before being considered for release.
Last week, we reported a growing number of people choosing to run from law enforcement.
This has lead to increase in the number of pursuits.
