A jury has reached a verdict against a man who is accused of taking at least two people hostage in 2014 in Norman. 

The jury found Devin Rogers guilty of four felony counts. Rogers faced six felony counts including kidnapping.

He is accused of holding at least two people hostage in November 2014 at the Nextep building in Norman. 

Since the hostage situation, Rogers has maintained that he wants to go to prison. 

"I did cause a lot of pain, scared a lot of people, did things I knew I wouldn't normally do in a normal basis, but my drive to go to a hole was stronger. I do feel bad. I deserve whatever I get," he said during his testimony on Friday.
