Former Braking Point Recovery owner withdraws request for release

Local News

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Former Braking Point Recovery owner Ryan Sheridan, who is facing charges such as Medicaid fraud and money laundering, withdrew a request to be released from custody.

The request was withdrawn on Tuesday — the same day prosecutors filed a response saying Sheridan is likely to get in trouble again. They say that’s in light of his previous run-ins with law enforcement since charges were filed against him in February.

Sheridan initially filed for release from custody on April 17 after prosecutors alleged that he violated the terms of his pretrial release in March. Prosecutors said he left the state without permission.

Tuesday, Sheridan withdrew his request but not before prosecutors filed a response saying he is a “continued threat” to the community.

Prosecutors also said in their response that Sheridan has indicated that if he were to be released to an agreed upon location that he “would not abide by those restrictions and would attempt to return to his residence at the time of his arrest.”

Sheridan’s withdrawal included a stipulation that he could file for release at a later time. He is currently being held in the Mahoning County Jail.
