CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A Dorchester County Circuit judge has sentenced a 30-year-old Cambridge man to 26 years in prison for assaulting two city police officers.
The Dorchester County State's Attorney Office announced Thursday that Kevin Dennis George Sr. of Cambridge was convicted of several charges including two counts of first-degree assault, fleeing and eluding, driving while suspended and other related charges.
On April 11, Judge Brett W. Wilson sentenced George to 25 years in prison for each of the two assault charges. Thirteen of the 25 years are suspended, but the two sentences are consecutive.
George was also sentenced to a consecutive three years for the fleeing and eluding charge and a consecutive one year for the driving while suspended charge. Prosecutors said those sentences were suspended. In total, George was sentenced to 54 years and the active incarceration period is 26 years.
Authorities said George faces these charges after he tried to hit two Cambridge police officers with his car and then fleeing from police on Nov. 7, 2011.
According to Cambridge police, the officers were investigating reports of gun shots fired in the area of the 900 block of Pine Street. Investigators said George was in his car in the area when the officers tried to make contact with him in connection with their investigation.
George proceeded to drive at the officers in an effort to flee the area, prosecutors said
