A 46 year old man from West Mineral is sentenced to 14 months in prison for his actions following a September 2021 traffic stop in Cherokee County.
Sean Allen Galloway received his sentence yesterday in Cherokee County District Court in Columbus. Galloway was driving north of Columbus in 2021 and when law enforcement attempted to pull him over, he fled for several miles before abandoning his vehicle and fleeing on foot into a wooded area, where he was eventually captured.
Galloway was held at the Cherokee County Jail until December 16, 2021, when he was transferred to the Newton County Missouri Sheriff's Office after an arrest warrant was issued for him on allegations of felony resisting arrest. Upon his release from custody in Missouri, Galloway failed to appear in Cherokee County Court and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
On July 26 of this year, Cherokee County Sheriff's Deputies attempted to arrest Galloway on the outstanding warrant when he barricaded himself inside a camper in Weir. He eventually surrendered. Galloway pled guilty to Interfering with law enforcement in August.
He is currently being held in the Cherokee County Jail awaiting transfer to the Kansas Department of Corrections.
