Prosecutors: Ryan counts should not be thrown out

October 8, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Ryan has served about 3 years of his 6 and a half year prison sentence. His lawyers say 8 of the 22 counts he was convicted of should be thrown out because the Supreme Court narrowed the focus of the so-called honest services law.

Prosecutors say he should remain in prison because there is little chance those counts will be dismissed.
