Law enforcement seeking man for violation of orders

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Lake Charles Police Department and local law enforcement agencies are seeking the whereabouts of Nicholas D'Ray Ryan, 27, Black Male, 6'1", 180 lbs, possibly residing at 602 Maple Street, Sulphur, LA, after he violated Judge Carter's orders.

Ryan was arrested in January 2010 for a shooting that occurred in December 2009 at the Jessie D. Clifton Park on Opelousas Street.

On November 11th, Ryan pled guilty to aggravated 2nd degree battery, amended from attempted 2nd degree murder in Judge Carter's courtroom.

Judge Carter sentenced Ryan to 13 years in prison and allowed Ryan to remain free until he reports to the Calcasieu Correctional Center by 4:00 p.m. on January 2, 2012, providing that he abide by a 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. curfew and stay out of trouble.

Less than three days after Judge Carter imposed the sentence and conditions upon Ryan he was arrested by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office on December 2nd, for 2nd offense possession of marijuana and contraband in a penal institution.

Judge Ware set Ryan's bond at $4000, and he bonded out later that day before anyone realized that he violated Judge Carter's orders placed upon him from sentencing day.

On December 6th Judge Carter issued a pick-up order for Nicholas Ryan for violating orders. As of December 9th, Ryan has not been arrested for Judge Carter's pick-up order.
