BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- The man at the center of a 21-hour standoff on top of Bethlehem's SteelStacks may soon be out of jail if a plea deal can be worked out.
Jonathan Wallace, 25, appeared in a Northampton County courtroom Wednesday morning.
The Berks County, Pennsylvania man has been behind bars, since scaling an old blast furnace last month.
When he finally climbed down, nearly a day later, Wallace was charged with risking a catastrophe and trespassing.
Both the defense and prosecution are now trying to work out a deal to move the case to mental health court, allowing Wallace to live with his father in Delaware in the meantime.
