Former public defender sentenced

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A former Marion County public defender arrested during an undercover child sex sting was sentenced Wednesday for child solicitation, a Class C felony.

Ryan W. Snyder received a three-year prison sentence for the felony, with one year suspended on probation.
 
Snyder, 30, was arrested Feb. 17, 2008, by an undercover Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Detective who posed online as a 15-year-old girl. The "girl" agreed to meet Snyder at a pre-arranged location for sex, according to the police report. Snyder used the Internet to set up the meeting and had previously e-mailed an explicit photo to the detective, whom he believed to be the underage girl.
 
Snyder worked as a defender assigned to Marion Superior Judge Becky Pierson-Treacy in Criminal Court 19, and was suspended after his arrest. The Indiana Roll of Attorneys lists Snyder as being admitted to the bar in September 2005.
