A man who initiated a police pursuit reaching speeds of 110km/h through the streets of Nyngan will remain behind bars.
Jason Craig Lang, 42, was spotted speeding west along Pangee Street in a maroon Hyundai elantra with a white passenger door about 11.15pm on April 11.
A pursuit began after Lang failed to pull over at the request of police, and accelerated harshly in what police say was an obvious attempt to evade them.
Officers pursued Lang through a number of residential streets in Nyngan reaching speeds of 110 km/h.
According to court documents Lang made no attempt to use indicators when taking corners, or stop and give way as signposted, showing what police said was a "general disregard for the safety of the community at large through his dangerous driving manner".
The pursuit continued for four minutes before being terminated on Pangee Street when police lost sight of the vehicle.
At 11am the next morning police located Lang's car, hidden among the leaves and branches of a gum tree, in a backyard of a house on Wambiana Street in Nyngan.
Police were told Lang had left the car there the night before.
About 4.55pm the same day officers attended a home on Cathundril Street where they believed Lang was hiding. Police searched the property and found Lang hiding between a shed and a piece of timber in the backyard, when he was arrested and charged.
Lang pleaded guilty to one count of a police pursuit drive dangerously non stop second offence, drive while disqualified second offence, use an unregistered motor vehicle and fail to appear in accordance with bail acknowledgement at Dubbo Local Court on Wednesday.
Lang's defence told the court he made a "foolish" decision and was in a "dark period" at the time of the offence.
The court heard Lang had suffered from grief after the loss of his brother, and had turned to illicit substances to deal with this. However the recent death of his father had been a significant factor in changing his attitude.
"He tells me he's sick of being locked up, he's sick of being in custody," Lang's defence told the court.
Magistrate Sharon Freund said Lang's record was not one that entitled him to leniency.
The court heard Lang had been involved in another police pursuit, while under the influence of alcohol in 2017, and had spent time in custody since this. According to court documents Lang has also held 73 prior police charges for numerous matters.
"You first came to the attention of police in 1995, it spans over seven pages," Magistrate Freund said.
Lang was sentenced to an aggregate term of imprisonment for 24 months, with a non-parole period of 18 months.
His sentence was backdated to July 28 and will be eligible for release on January 27, 2022.
