Local man gets life for 14th felony conviction

A Parker County jury sentenced a man who pled guilty to fleeing from a Parker County sheriff’s deputy at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour to life in prison in a trial that ended Thursday.

58-year-old Harold Dewayne Ferguson of Weatherford pled guilty to evading arrest with a vehicle on Monday and elected to have a jury determine his punishment.

The D.A.’s Office said Ferguson had 13 prior felony convictions and 187 years of prison sentences in his past, including felony drug cases.

Jurors deliberated for about 20 minutes before returning with their verdict.
