Little Rock Man Pleads Guilty to Running Down Joggers in Missouri

Vincent T. Anderson, 19, faces up to 15 years in prison when sentenced.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - A Little Rock man has pleaded guilty in Missouri to running down three joggers in a stolen car.

The incident happened in October in Cape Girardeau.

Vincent T. Anderson, 19, pleaded guilty to a felony assault charge on Tuesday. He faces up to 15 years in prison at sentencing.

Anderson had first been charged with five felony counts but prosecutors amended the first charge to include all three victims and dropped the remaining charges in exchange for an admission of guilt.

Anderson was accused of stealing a 1994 Ford Thunderbird from a convenience store and deliberately driving it into a group of joggers, striking three of them -- Southeast Missouri State University provost Ron Rosati, Paul Schell and Laura Sheridan.

None of the victims was seriously injured.

Anderson's sentencing is set for May 21.
