WASHINGTON - The fired chief of staff for U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander was expected Thursday in federal court after the aide's arrest on probable cause for possession and distribution of child pornography, authorities said.
Ryan Loskarn was a rising star who had spent the past decade working his way up to increasingly important posts in the U.S. House and then the Senate.
According to a filing with the U.S. District Court in Washington Thursday, police used a ram to enter Loskarn's home the day before, and noticed that Loskarn put something on the ledge outside his window.
