Ex-Sheboygan Mayor Bob Ryan fined for groping woman's breasts in 2011


SHEBOYGAN, WI (WTAQ) - Former Sheboygan Mayor Bob Ryan will pay $770 in fines and court fees, to settle allegations that groped a woman’s breasts during a drinking binge in 2011.

Ryan avoided jail time when he was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded no contest on Monday to a pair of misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges – which were reduced from fourth-degree sexual assault in a plea deal.

The groping incident came during a three-day drinking binge in Elkhart Lake, which spurred a recall election that Ryan lost a year ago.

The 49-year-old Ryan told a judge Wednesday that he admitted “drinking to excess.” He has admitted a number of times that he’s an alcoholic.

Ryan served almost 3 years of his only four-year term to which he was elected in 2009.
