Douglas W. May Jr. was sentenced to serve 20-36 months imprisonment Wednesday in Gage County District Court.

May was sentenced after pleaded no contest to operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest, attempted assault of an officer and resisting arrest in November.

Mays long 13-year criminal record was highlighted during the sentencing, a career the 26-year-old began at the age of 13.

Since 2005, May has been arrested 21 times in three states, and was sentenced to time in the state penitentiary in 2009 for a drug charge.

Mays record included only one felony from 2009, otherwise he had been convicted of misdemeanors and he argued May deserved a chance at probation to fix his problems.

District Judge Paul Korslund sentenced May to 20-36 months in prison for operating a motor vehicle to avoid arrest and 12 months in prison each for attempted third degree assault of an officer and resisting arrest.

Griffins Hold On Against Dorchester

A quick start coupled with balanced scoring lifted Diller-Odell to a 39-36 home win over Dorchester Dec. 10.

Diller-Odell came out determined at the start of the game vaulting out to a 12-4 lead on the Longhorns.

The scoring was down in the second quarter with the Griffins maintaining a 9-6 scoring advantage on Dorchester for an 18-13 halftime lead.

Each team matched one another point for point in the third quarter scoring 11 points leaving Diller-Odell holding a 29-24 lead.

The Griffins struggled in the fourth quarter at the free throw line connecting on just 4-12 attempts which made things quite nerve racking for the home team.

Even though Diller-Odell was hampered with cold shooting at the free throw line in the fourth quarter, its defense played well enough to hold Dorchester off.
