Sentencing postponed for retired Arizona prisons boss who pleaded no-contest in armed standoff

Retired Arizona Corrections Director Charles Ryan pauses in the courtroom after pleading no contest to a disorderly conduct charge in a plea agreement at Maricopa County Superior Court, Nov. 14, 2023, in Phoenix. Ryan is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024, for the plea, which stems from an encounter in which police say he fired a gun inside his Tempe, Ariz., home in early 2022 and pointed a firearm at two officers during a three-hour standoff.
