Vehicle attack leads to prison
01/07/2021

(KAIR)--A Leavenworth man will spend more than 13-years behind bars, sentenced last week in connection with a 2016 altercation involving a vehicle.

According to a news release from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, 38-year-old Stephen Cox was sentenced December 28th to over 13-and-a-half years in prison for a May, 2016 altercation in the area of Leavenworth’s Broadway and Spruce Streets.

According to Thompson, Cox was driving that day when, after seeing his ex-girlfriend riding in a vehicle with another man, he followed that vehicle to 20th and Spruce. Cox threw a metal object at that vehicle, with the other man eventually getting out and standing in the middle of 20th Street. It was then, the release said, that Cox used his pickup truck to strike the man, which required hospital treatment after he suffered several broken ribs and a broken leg.

Prior to his sentencing in Leavenworth County District Court, Cox’s request for a lesser sentence, or probation, was denied.
