Prosecutors To Decide On Mayor Bob Charges After Election

2/15/12 – Voters in Sheboygan will decide next Tuesday whether to recall Mayor Bob Ryan. And local prosecutors do not expect to decide until after the election whether Ryan will be charged with sexual assault. Fond du Lac County sheriff’s investigators looked into what Ryan did during a weekend drinking binge in Elkhart Lake last July. And they recommended two misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree sex assault. District Attorney Joe DeCecco says there’s no favoritism involved. He said felony cases take top priority — and DeCecco probably would not have gotten to Ryan’s case any sooner under any circumstance. Ryan denies any illegal activity during his drinking binge, which spurred a Common Council investigation and petitions for a recall election with just over a year to go in Ryan’s term. Ryan faces former state Representative Terry Van Akkeren in next Tuesday’s recall vote.
