PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A Minnesota man has been sentenced to more than nine years in prison for a carjacking in South Dakota.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 28-year-old Michael Jaime of Dilworth, Minnesota, stole a car at gunpoint at a Sioux Falls truck stop in July 2016.

He later fled from officers in Moorhead, Minnesota, who discontinued the pursuit when speeds reached 140 mph. The car was found abandoned the next day in Dilworth, and Jaime was later arrested.

He pleaded guilty in December and was recently sentenced to nine years and two months in prison. A restitution hearing will be held later.
