High speed chase suspect pleads guilty


The man Albany authorities say led them on a high speed chase that ended in a crash pleaded guilty in court Monday morning.

Vincent Jackson, 28, pleaded guilty to felony eluding and several other charges in the case.

Albany Dougherty Drug Unit agents say Jackson led officers on the chase in August 2013 through Albany streets and neighborhoods, and eventually ended when Jackson hit a light pole with his SUV, nearly injuring a woman standing nearby.

In October, Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards said he will ask for the maximum sentence for people convicted of running from police in high speed chases.

Jackson's sentence has not yet been handed down.
