Case summaryAdd info | Back to top
LDS Tim Ryan “is serving a 10-year probation term after pleading guilty in 2008 to a charge
of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 1 6. Detectives say the victim’s family reported
the case in 1999; it was dropped when the girl’s family wouldn’t cooperate with
investigators. About the time the case was dropped, prosecutors said, the girl met with
Ryan and an LDS bishop. The victim told the Idaho Statesman last week that she had to
attend meeting with an LDS bishop and Ryan where she was asked to forgive Ryan for his
actions. ‘ At that point, 1 was really scared. My family was about to be torn apart,’ she said.
‘They wanted me to forgive him. 1 was 14. 1 was put on the spot.”
