An Okmulgee man was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison in a case of eluding a peace officer.
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Clinton Randall Primeaux, age 29, was handed the sentence, being found guilty of endangering others while eluding a police officer.
The charges arose from investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Henryetta Police Department.
On Jan. 19, 2024, Primeaux pleaded guilty to eluding a peace officer in a manner as to endanger any other person in Indian country.
According to investigators, on Oct. 20, 2021, Primeaux led officers on a high-speed chase through Henryetta and onto Interstate 40. Primeaux’s vehicle eventually came to a stop in Clearview. The crime occurred in Okmulgee and Okfuskee Counties, within the boundaries of the Muscogee Nation Reservation in the Eastern District of Oklahoma.
The Honorable Charles B. Goodwin, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma, sitting by assignment, presided over the hearings in Oklahoma City.
