GREEN BAY - A man accused of leading police on a high-speed chase through two area counties was convicted of the Oconto County charges Monday.
Kyle Buckles, 26, had his Oconto County charges consolidated with the Brown County case. He was convicted of two of the six counts: operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent and fleeing an officer.
He was previously convicted of three charges in Brown County.
The chase happened in July 2012. It started in Oconto County and ended in Brown County. During the chase, a Brown County sheriff's deputy lost control of his car, crossed the median and hit another vehicle. A Milwaukee woman driving the other vehicle suffered serious injuries.
Buckles is set to be sentenced Oct. 18.
