    A Connecticut man is headed to jail after admitting he fled from a Massachusetts police officer who was trying to pull him over and crashed following a pursuit. 

    The Berkshire Eagle reported Saturday that 29-year-old Luis Minaya pleaded guilty last week to charges including failing to stop for police and negligent operation of a motor vehicle. 

    He has been sentenced to three months in jail. 

    Police said Minaya and another suspect stole from a Wal-Mart store in December 2013. An Adams, Massachusetts police officer recognized his vehicle and tried to pull him over. 

    A chase ended when Minaya hit a guard rail and crashed. 

    Court records indicate Minaya is serving a five-year prison sentence in Connecticut for sexual assault.
