Jacob Dziewic Pleads Guilty To Role In Armed Standoff

A Casper man has admitted his role in an armed standoff at a local hotel.

Twenty-year old Jacob Dziewic entered a guilty plea on one count of felony possession of a firearm and four counts of felonious restraint.

Those charges stemmed from a day-long armed standoff at the west-side Casper Super 8 hotel in August.

Investigators say one of the alleged hostages said that she, her boyfriend and two other people were visiting Dziewic and twenty-year-old Joey Geelan at the hotel.

She said Dziewic and geelan left for awhile and when they returned, they had a suitcase full of drugs and started showing off their guns.

Court records indicate the pair later refused to allow anyone to leave and police arrived a short time later.

Police say Geelan killed himself, about an hour after Dziewic surrendered to authorities.

Prosecutors say Dziewic was on probation at the time on an unrelated charge.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a fifteen year prison sentence, and no federal charges will be filed.

Dziewic will be sentenced at a later date.
