A Sedgwick County judge on Thursday imposed a 123-month prison sentence on a man whose passenger was killed in a motorcycle crash as he fled from law enforcement, court records show.
Joshua L. Wynn, 23, was given the more than 10-year term in the 2011 death of 19-year-old Mallory Scofield, according to Sedgwick County district court documents. He was convicted of second-degree unintentional but reckless murder in February after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors, court records show.
Scofield died Sept. 1, 2011, after she and Wynn were thrown from a motorcycle in west Wichita. The wreck occurred as Wynn – originally charged with first-degree murder in commission of a felony and two misdemeanor driving offenses – tried to elude a sheriff’s deputy during an attempted traffic stop.
Wynn on Thursday also received six months for driving on a suspended license and operating a motor vehicle without a valid license; the term will run concurrently with the 123-month sentence, court records show.
