GRAND FORKS (AP) - A Grafton man accused of leading police on three chases in August in Grand Forks and Fargo has pleaded not guilty to numerous charges against him in eight separate cases.
The Grand Forks Herald reports that 32-year-old Juan Robles faces 10 felony counts, including fleeing police, reckless endangerment and drug possession. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of five years upon conviction. He also faces several misdemeanor counts.
Prosecutors say Robles three times over five days led police on dangerous chases, causing several accidents including two that involved minor injuries. Authorities say he got away twice but was arrested after crashing his car in the third chase.
Defense attorney Ted Sandberg has said it's not clear that Robles was driving the cars police say he was.
