      Donald "Rick" Pruett, 53

      A Quincy man who carried on a standoff with police is headed to prison.

      Donald "Rick" Pruett, 53, pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sexual abuse Monday.

      He is sentenced to four and a half years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

      Two other charges against Pruett, battery and obstruction of an officer were dropped.

      In February Pruett was accused of inappropriately touching a girl under the age of 13.

      When investigators went to his home Pruett barricaded himself in a bedroom for several hours.
