RED CLOUD, Neb. (AP) - A 31-year-old man has been given six months in jail and three years of probation for holding a woman hostage in a Red Cloud home.

The Hastings Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Mxta4y ) that Charles Folkman, of Red Cloud, had pleaded no contest and was convicted of false imprisonment. Prosecutors had lowered the charge and dropped two others in exchange for Folkman’s plea. He was sentenced earlier this month.

Officers responded around 2 a.m. on April 9 to the Red Cloud residence. Authorities say a negotiator arranged the release of an uninvolved 26-year-old man just before 3 a.m. The 46-year-old woman was released 15 minutes later and was treated at a nearby hospital for minor injuries.

Folkman surrendered around 5 a.m.
