The court was closed Friday; no one answered the phone at Ryan’s office.
She was first elected in 2010.
“The fact that Ms. Ryan is an elected official did not play any part in the charge that was authorized and will not play any part in the handling or disposition of this case,” said county prosecutor Karen McDonald, a former judge.MORE NEWS: Judge Says Michigan Gov.
