A Casper man is heading to prison after admitting his role in an armed standoff at a local motel.

Twenty-year-old Jacob Dziewic was sentenced to six-to-12 years at the Wyoming State Penitentiary, after pleading guilty to 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 hostages told them 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.
