Elvis Gene Shifflett, the Esmont man shot by Charlottesville Police last October after leading authorities on a multi-day manhunt after attacking his girlfriend, has pleaded guilty to multiple charges. The Daily Progress reports that he admitted yesterday to pulling a gun on his girlfriend, the incident that led to the chase.
The Progress' Liesel Nowak reports, the still-recovering Shifflett appeared in court yesterday leaning on a walker as he pleaded guilty to pulling a gun on Linda Shifflett October 13, 2006 in Court Square.
Nowak reports that when sentencing occurs in October 16, Albemarle prosecutors intend to recommend that Shifflett receive a sentence of at least five years in prison.
