On May 14, 2015 Paul Benchoff, 28, of Greensboro, Maryland entered a plea of guilty in the Queen Anne’s County District Court to fleeing from police and disorderly conduct and was sentenced to jail for one year and 60 days.

The charges in this case arose from an incident on March 30, 2015 when a Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Deputy initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Benchoff.  While the Deputy was running routine license and registration checks Benchoff began running from the scene of the traffic stop.  A multi police agency search was conducted for Benchoff and he was apprehended several days later.

Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Doud prosecuted this case.
