Ryan Grantham A Actor From “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” Sentenced To Life Prison

Ryan Grantham, an actor, has been sentenced to life in jail for killing his mother, Barbara Waite. In March 2020, Graham pled ‘guilty’ to second-degree murder. The decision was issued by the British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver. According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Grantham will be unable to ask for parole for at least 14 years. Barbara’s loved ones, including Grantham’s sister, were quoted by Justice Kathleen Ker. Ker remarked that his only saving grace was that he was aware of the crime and did not go on a rampage.

Ker discussed Grantham’s mental health difficulties, indicating that he had a few issues before to the event and was also viewing violent material online. He is presently having mental therapy in jail and has apparently made significant progress. Grantham, according to his attorney Chris Johnson, was not surprised by the sentencing. Johnson claims that

“I believe he expected the penalty imposed by the court. I believe he is nervous about the entire situation. He’s a little man, and I’m sure going to jail is a terrible and frightening prospect for him.”

Given Grantham’s stature, Ker advised against sending him to a high-security jail.

Rodney James then learns how to slip a computer game inside his costume and begins playing it to pass the time during rehearsals since he has nothing else to do except sit on the stage. Archie Kelly then falls over him, chipping his teeth since he couldn’t use his arms to stop himself. After that, the school enables him and the other three actors to chisel out arm holes. However, James has stage fright before to the performance, forcing the production to be delayed by 30 minutes. His mother holds him since he won’t move, and despite playing bush, he becomes a part of the tree scene throughout the show.
