MONTEREY CO., Calif. (BCN) — A Monterey man was sentenced last week to 8 years and 4 months in prison after being convicted of attempted carjacking and other crimes.

Freddy Gustaf Swanson, 31, was given the sentence in a Monterey County courtroom after being found guilty in late September, according to a news release from the Monterey County district attorney. Swanson stole a vehicle in January 2021 and led Monterey Police officers on a high-speed chase that ended when he collided with a parked, occupied car.
