Man Sentenced for High Speed Chase in Rochester
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A former Rochester man who was recently convicted of leading officers on a high-speed chase has been sentenced to 21 months in prison.

The deputy broke off the pursuit when they neared downtown Rochester. Officers later discovered Taylor had fled on foot after crashing. He was eventually apprehended.
He is currently serving a prison term in Wisconsin where he was convicted of armed robbery.
