A former Prince Albert corrections guard at the center of a fatal hit and run case and standoff has been sentenced to four years in jail.

Forty-five-year old Leslie Samoleski was charged in April 2011 after hitting 14-year-old Montana Netmaker with a truck.

He left the scene and barricaded himself in a house for 15 hours. In December, Samoleski pleaded guilty to two weapons offences and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

With time already served, Samoleski will be behind bars for three years and nine months. The judge says he took into consideration Samoleski's criminal record, which includes 12 prior convictions.
