Daniel W. McCarty, 51, of Gettysburg, was sentenced to 90 days in jail with 90 days days suspended and zero days credit, 24 months of community control sanctions and 25 hours of community service to charges involving fleeing and eluding. A jury found McCarty guilty of the failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer (with no serious risk or harm), a first-degree misdemeanor, driving under suspension, a first-degree misdemeanor and resisting arrest, a second-degree misdemeanor.
