A Wyoming County man already convicted of four separate incidents of going more than double the speed limit has now been convicted of twice committing perjury.

Nathan Hulme, 22, of Gainesville was found guilty this year on October 9 and November 2 of multiple counts of first degree reckless endangerment for the four speeding incidents, all of which involved Hulme going twice the legal speed limit.

Hulme was arrested in 2013 on August 5, 20, 24 and October 9, and in two of the incidents Hulme nearly struck police officers.

On Tuesday, Hulme was convicted of two counts of perjury. During the first two indictments, Hulme took the stand in an attempt to have a statement he made thrown out. But the statement had been videotaped by an officer’s body camera.

Hulme took the stand telling the judge he had never said “anything like that,” in complete contradiction. Both Hulme and his attorney were aware of the video and had been given a copy.

For the four speeding incidents, Hulme faces between six and 12 years in prison. He could be sentenced to three-and-a-half to seven years in prison for each perjury count.

Hulme returns to court on January 9, when he goes on trial for an April fight in the county jail that left a guard with injuries.
