RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Box Elder man who held a 2-year-old boy hostage during a six-hour standoff at a Rapid City home that he was trying to burglarize has been sentenced.

Thirty-three-year-old Raymond Cuny was ordered to serve six years in prison and pay more than $14,000 in restitution.

Cuny pleaded guilty earlier to burglary and grand theft charges in the case last July. He also pleaded guilty to a driving under the influence charge linked to an October car crash while he was out on bond in which he hit two parked city vehicles. No one was hurt.

Cuny in court admitted to having a drug problem.
