former Riverdale And the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Actor Ryan Grantham has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 14 years for the 2020 murder of his mother.
British Columbia Supreme Court Justice Kathleen Kerr handed down the second-degree murder sentence in the book on September 21 in Vancouver. With the ruling already waived on Canadian provincial laws, the only real ticket was how long the guilty plea Grantham must wait before the 24-year-old can apply for parole.
Grantham, a Leo Awards nominee, turned himself into police shortly after shooting his 64-year-old mother, Barbara White, in the back of the head on March 31, 2020, at the family’s Squamish home, north of Vancouver.
The second-degree murder charge in British Columbia comes without a 10- to 25-year parole eligibility. In this context, prosecutors at a hearing earlier this year recommended that Grantham receive a pardon for ineligibility for up to 18 years. The former actor’s legal team suggested 12 years as a fair result. Apparently Judge Kerr met them halfway through her decision this week.
Vancouver law enforcement officials have confirmed that Grantham, who was originally charged with first-degree murder, has been in custody for two and a half years. The sources, who has been involved in a mental health program since his arrest, said Grantham is in the process of preparing for transfer to a permanent facility.
With about 30 credits in his autobiography, Grantham played the role of Jeffrey Augustine notably on the fourth season of The CW soapy. Riverdale In 2019. While appearing briefly, the character had a pivotal role in Archie’s comic-based show. It was Jeffrey Augustine who killed the late Luke Perry portraying Fred Andrews in the series in a hit and run that changed almost everything on the show. Starting his career in 2007, Grantham also appeared in the 2010 film diary of a wimpy kid, As well as tasks supernatural, iZombie and in Imaginarium by Dr. Parnassus.
It was later revealed in court that after his mother’s murder, Grantham took a video of the corpse and confessed to the killing on camera. A day later, after carefully arranging the corpse in a semi-religious scene, Grantham hit the road. With an ever-changing intent, he would at one point attempt to kill Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, he also wrote in a magazine entered as evidence. Grantham also considered committing a mass shooting at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver or on the famous Lyons Gate Bridge.
Fortunately, none of that happened and Grantham instead went to a cop store in East Vancouver and gave up. “I killed my mother,” he reportedly openly told police at the station’s reception desk.
Back in March of this year, the multiple credit representative was saddened by what he had done. “Faced with something so terrible, saying sorry seems futile,” Grantham told Vancouver District Court and Judge Kerr as he read from a paper. “But out of every fiber of my being, I’m sorry.”
