Corvallis, OR - A registered sex offender who eluded police in a chase through North Albany in September has been sentenced to 90 days in jail.
The Corvallis Gazette-Timesreports that 31-year-old Clarence Haws was wanted by the state parole board for not registering as a sex offender when he eluded Benton County sheriff deputies, a canine unit and Albany police officers.
The Lebanon man ditched his car and fled on foot through fields and yards. He was arrested three weeks later.
As part of a plea deal, Haws pleaded guilty to a felony charge of failure to register as a sex offender, as well as misdemeanor charges of giving false information to police, third-degree escape, reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
