VanGorden Gets 40 Years to Life

The Addison, New York, man who tried to kill two state troopers in September of 2011 has been sentenced to 40 years to life in state prison.

38-year-old Richard VanGorden was convicted in November of attempted murder and other charges related to a high-speed chase in Hornellsville. VanGorden held police at bay during a three-hour stand-off at a trailer park in Wellsville that ended when police used tear gas to force him out.

VanGorden still insists he did not try to kill the troopers.
