Shaw gets 10 years for injuring woman in DWI wreck

A Parker County jury sentenced a Weatherford man Tuesday night to a pair of ten year prison sentences for fleeing from Springtown police while intoxicated.

30-year-old Emmett Austin Shaw ran from police driving over 120 miles per hour last September. He rear-ended a car driven by J.P. court clerk Deana Mathes, sending Mathes to the hospital and rehab for nearly two months.

Shaw pleaded guilty and had multiple priors, including a heroin conviction.
