Ryan has apologized to everyone. Ryan faced harsher penalties, but the charges were reduced after an extensive plea bargain negotiations by his lawyer. Ryan received a 6 month suspended jail sentence. His probation requires that he stay off the Internet, any social networking sites and away from his former high school.
