(Las Vegas, NV) — Former Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks has been sentenced to two years and eight months in a California prison.

The judge says Brooks has served his sentence, giving him credit for 485 days served, and another 485 for good behavior.

Brooks faced felony charges of evading a peace officer and resisting arrest in the pursuit that happened along I-15 in March of last year.  It occurred hours after he was expelled from the state Assembly after lawmakers complained about his bizarre behavior, saying they didn’t feel safe around him.

Brooks has been held in a California jail since the incident.

Earlier this year, Brooks agreed to a plea deal.  In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop charges that he threw something at a police car and attacked a police dog.

 

In Nevada, he still faces misdemeanor charges related to a domestic violence incident in Clark County.
