ELYRIA, Ohio – A northern Ohio man convicted in a fatal car crash and released early from prison has ended up back behind bars after a judge and the victim's family took issue with a Facebook post he made.
The post by 22-year-old Ryan Fye of Lorain had a photo of him making an obscene gesture and a message in which he said, "Prison didn't break me. It made me." It was posted shortly after his release in December. He had been sentenced to three years in May.
The message upset relatives of the Elyria (eh-LEER'-ee-uh) man killed in the March 2013 crash, and a judge concluded it violated sanctions imposed on Fye.
Fye's attorney says his client wasn't trying to be disrespectful and didn't violate probation or the law.
