Twenty-one-year-old Jesus Manuel Ochoa-Estrada of Cananea, Sonora, was sentenced yesterday.
Prosecutors say Ochoa-Estrada was fleeing from federal agents toward Mexico in February 2004 when he rammed the car of a U-S Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer.
He then led officers from three agencies on a 15-mile chase between Bisbee and Mexico.
Ochoa-Estrada was caught after abandoning his truck loaded with pot.
He was convicted of assault on a federal officer with a deadly weapon, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and depredation against property.
