CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Prosecutors are recommending prison time for a man who has entered a no-contest plea to assaulting a stranger he met at a Casper bar.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1wWO423V) that 32-year-old James Steele entered the plea Friday in Natrona County District Court.

Steele pleaded no contest to aggravated assault and felonious restraint and prosecutors dismissed a charge of grand larceny.

Prosecutors say Steele met drove a man to a rural area in August and held him at gunpoint while ordering him to empty his pockets. They say the victim managed to grab the gun and threw it away before punching Steele.

Prosecutors suggested that Steele will serve up to six years in prison. He will be sentenced at a later date.
