The Ontario County man accused of causing a standoff that shut down a Victor neighborhood pleaded guilty in court Wednesday morning.

Ryan Whidden pleaded guilty to second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison. The sentence includes five years of post-release supervision.

Police say Whidden fired at parked cars outside his Ketchum Street house last March in Victor. He then barricaded himself in home and held his wife against her will. Officers say they forced Whidden to surrender after the 12 hour standoff by using tear gas.
