A man who has an extensive criminal history has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison for a recent series of crimes, officials said.

Scott Reineke, 43, was given 86 months in prison for a series of crimes including burglary, theft, possession of stolen property, making false information and fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said in a prepared statement.

Reineke was identified by police after he gave an officer his driver’s license prior to fleeing a routine traffic stop at Topeka and Orme on Jan. 16. He was sentenced to 74 months in June for his conviction on 11 felonies, and Sedgwick County District Court Judge Warren Wilbert gave Reineke an additional year for fleeing or attempting to elude Wichita police.

In tacking on the additional time last Friday, Wilbert noted Reineke has a criminal history of more than 50 felony convictions.
