Posted: Updated:

There was a plea deal for a man who triggered a 5 hour standoff in Newport last fall.

Derek Niles pleaded no contest to reckless endangerment Tuesday. He got a deferred sentence and will be on probation until April next year. He also has to get mental health counseling. Niles had filed several motions from jail including one asking to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
