A Linwood man was sentenced to more than three years in prison for fleeing from Leavenworth County deputies and violating probation in other cases, according to a prosecution official.

James Dakota Fletcher, 26, was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court.

Fletcher was sentenced to 10 months in prison for reportedly leading deputies from Leavenworth County on a pursuit through Linwood in February 2017, according to a news release from County Attorney Todd Thompson.

Fletcher also had his probation revoked in a case involving a 2015 burglary of a detached garage in Linwood. He was ordered to serve 27 months in prison in this case.

He also had his probation revoked in a 2017 case involving charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and interference with law enforcement. He was ordered to serve nine months in prison in this case. He also will have to serve an additional three months in the Leavenworth County Jail in this case, according to Thompson.

The sentences totaled to 46 months, or three years and 10 months in prison, and three months in the County Jail.

In a statement, Thompson thanked law enforcement officers.

“These officers are the backbone of our society,” he said in the news release. “They continually protect and fight for our safety, even when their well-being is at risk.”
