The man involved in the stand off at the Super 8 Motel in Casper and holding four people hostage, pleaded guilty to five counts Friday morning.
Jacob Dziewic faces up to 15 years in prison for on one count of possession of a deadly weapon and four counts to holding a person against their will.
In a plea agreement with the district attorney, Dziewic's sentences have to run concurrently. The maximum sentence on each of the four charges of holding a person against their will is five years, but because a semi automatic pistol was involved, Dwiezic could see an additional 10 years in prison.
Dziewic is one of two suspects involved in the August 21st stand off. The suspect other took his own life during the 11 hour hostage situation.
Restitution will be decided during Dziewic's sentencing at a later date.
