CEDAR RAPIDS – An East Coast man who led Northern Iowa cops on dangerous chase and fired a gun at them has been sent to prison for a decade.

Richard Dale Ogle, II, age 31, from Eden, North Carolina, received the prison term after a November 12, 2019 guilty plea to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Evidence at the sentencing hearing showed Ogle was on parole after serving a prison term in North Carolina for assault with a deadly weapon which inflected serious injury. Ogle absconded from parole and moved to Iowa to live with his girlfriend. On March 16, 2019, Ogle held a gun to his girlfriend’s head and threatened to kill her. Police responded to the residence and were able to remove the girlfriend from the home. Ogle then left the residence in a vehicle, driving through the town of Cresco. When he was near the high school in Cresco, officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop of his car. Ogle refused to stop and led officers on a high-speed chase through Cresco and continuing into Winneshiek County. The chase took place over the course of fourteen miles and involved speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. During the chase, Ogle shot his gun six times at police. Ogle eventually stopped his car and was taken into custody by law enforcement.

Ogle was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court C.J. Williams. Ogle was sentenced to 120 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

At the sentencing, Judge Williams noted that, “defendant’s serious violent criminal history and high likelihood at reoffending” warranted the statutory maximum sentence.

Ogle is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lisa C. Williams and investigated by the Cresco Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Howard County Sheriff’s Office, Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office, and the Iowa State Patrol.

OGLE, RICHARD DALE
