Inside Edition spoke to family members who state their loved one, an elderly victim, was left with missing teeth, a concussion, cuts requiring stitches and other injuries after a random and unprovoked attack. The attack was witnessed partially by a loved one.
WINTERS has 2 criminal convictions for impaired driving in 2012 & 2017.
According to a jailhouse source, another inmate who befriended WINTERS in jail, tells the Inside Edition that WINTERS admitted to him that he was on a cocaine, opiate and alcohol fuelled high when he attacked the senior repeatedly kicking him in the head.
There was a publication ban issued on evidence and reasons given at the bail hearing.
But ultimately, Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic decides that RYAN MILTON WINTERS can be released on $4000 no deposit recognizance with a surety. $1000 is to be pledged by the accused. $3000 is to be pledged by his mother.
WINTERS has been ordered to stay away from his alleged victims.
WINTERS must reside at his apartment in the 100 block of South Algoma with his mother. He’s on virtual house arrest conditions.
