Andrew Terry gets 202 year habitual-criminal jolt after drunkenly running over officer's foot
|The 9700 block of Steele Street, where Terry was captured.|
Fortunately, the officer managed to get out of the way in time, and even fired off a shot that missed its target. However, Terry was captured a short time later at the 9700 block of Steele Street by a member of the Colorado State Patrol, one of several agencies that participated in the bust. The chase was also captured on video by the Denver Police Department's helicopter unit.
For these actions, Terry was found guilty by an Adams County jury this past October of attempted first-degree murder, second-degree assault, criminal trespass, third-degree assault, vehicular eluding and criminal mischief. (Chambers was still in office at the time.) And last week, he received that 202 year sentence whose heftiness can be attributed in part to the habitual criminal multiplier.
