Man sentenced to 25 years for Kansas carjacking

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A man who pushed a woman out of the driver’s side of her vehicle during a gunpoint carjacking has been ordered to spend a quarter century in federal prison.

The Kansas City Star reports that 25-year-old John Devosha was sentenced in Kansas City, Kansas. That’s where he pleaded guilty to the October 2013 attack and to using a firearm in the carjacking.

Authorities say Devosha wrecked a stolen pickup truck in Kansas City, Kansas, before a woman driving a 2002 Cadillac DeVille was stalled in traffic.

Devosha broke out her passenger window and entered the car, then pushed her out of the car and sped away.

He was arrested three days later.
