James Lewis Kardos, who barricaded himself in his father's Lake Monticello home after assaulting the mother of his child in Charlottesville, pleaded guilty Tuesday to several charges in Charlottesville Circuit Court.

Kardos, 23, of Charlottesville, pleaded guilty to one count of violating the good behavior clause of his parole from a felony drug offense; one count of kidnapping; one count of malicious wounding; and one count of child abuse, according to court records.

Kardos fired a single shot during a nine-hour standoff with Lake Monticello, Fluvanna County and state police, according to state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller. No one was hurt during the incident, which ended peacefully just after 1 a.m. Feb. 23.

Kardos stole a relative's sedan and fled to Fluvanna County after striking his ex-girlfriend in the back of her head while she was holding their 1-year-old daughter, Charlottesville police Lt. Ronnie Roberts said. The dispute took place at his grandmother's house on Sheridan Avenue.

Kardos is scheduled to appear in Fluvanna Circuit Court on Thursday to face charges of possession of a gun, reckless handling of a gun and obstructing justice.

He will be sentenced in Charlottesville Circuit Court in December.
