MAYVILLE – Two Jamestown men were both sentenced to state prison in separate cases recently in area courts.

The Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office says 31-year-old Nicholas Brown was sentenced on May 26 to one-and-a-half to three years in state prison for two counts of criminal contempt by Judge John LaMancuso in Jamestown City Court, with the sentences to run concurrently. Brown plead guilty in March.

Brown was charged following an hours long standoff involving a nine-year-old hostage on Spring Street Extended in Jamestown in Sept, 2018.

Police originally responded to the location for a reported domestic violence call around 3 a.m. The hostage situation ended around 2 p.m. that Sunday with the child unharmed and reunited with family member.

Officials say Nathaniel Hollins, meanwhile, was sentenced Tuesday by Chautauqua County Court Judge David W. Foley to one-and-a-half to three years indeterminate in state prison on a plea to first-degree criminal contempt.
