“Riverdale’ Actor who received life sentence for killing his mother fears he’ll be brutalized in prison, says his attorney

Ryan Grantham, the former “Riverdale” actor who was sentenced to life in prison for killing his mother, Barbara Waite, is “gravely concerned” about his living conditions if he’s forced to serve his time at a maximum security facility.

The 24-year-old was given the sentence last week by a Canada Supreme Court, six months after he pleaded guilty to the killing of Waite in 2020.

His lawyer, Chris Johnson, has since spoken out about his client’s fears of being put in a prison where he’s bound to be a target, considering he only weighs about 100 lbs and stands 5’2” tall. Johnson hopes that the correctional authorities will be lenient when it comes to where Grantham is expected to serve out his life-long sentence and hopes that they’ll take into consideration the convicted felon’s height and size to prevent him from being attacked by potential intimidating inmates.

If he’s placed in a max security prison, Johnson believes Grantham may be “physically, psychologically and sexually intimidated,” and in most cases, the correctional authorities could consider those factors as a valid reason to place him in a less terrorizing facility. A judge previously agreed with the concerns pertaining to where Grantham will serve his time, but the final say is always left to be made by prison officials.
