Sierran Banks

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A man charged with shooting at another couple outside the Martinsburg DMV last year and then leading police on a high-speed pursuit days later will serve one to five years in prison.

Sierran Banks, 28, was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine when he was sentenced Monday.

Banks entered a guilty plea in October to single misdemeanor counts of brandishing a deadly weapon and fleeing from a law-enforcement officer by means other than use of a vehicle, plus one felony count of fleeing in a vehicle with reckless indifference.

According to the Herald Mail Banks had been on parole for a 2014 federal drug case when the incident occurred.

He was credited for time served for the misdemeanor convictions, and the judge dismissed possible 12-month sentences for each offense.
