"He started yelling as soon as mom walked in, and I don't know, I guess I just couldn't do nothing anymore. So I walked into his bedroom got his gun and the next thing I remember is the gun in my hand it was still hot and dad on the floor."
—Ryan Remini to Annalise Keating's office[src]

Season 1Edit

Sharon and Ryan thank the team. ("We're Not Friends")

After his mother, Sharon Remini, endured years and years of abuse at the hands of her husband, Anthony Remini, Ryan, took matters into his own hands and shot and killed his father to prevent his mother from enduring any more hardship from her husband. After coming clean to the police, the District Attorney's Office charged Ryan with murder. Sharon and Ryan then go to Annalise Keating's Law Firm for their assistance. During court, the judge decided that the abuse which Sharon suffered at the hands of her husband wouldn't be taken into account, which was bad as Ryan's entire defense was based on the abuse. Annalise later comes up with a new plan to get the abuse taken into account by using one of Ryan's teachers. They testified about Ryan singing a song which happened to be on Ryan's blog which recorded stages of Sharon's abuse. This then leads the judge to allow the abuse. After Sharon took the stand and testified first hand about the abuse and that Ryan was saving her, the prosecutor made it seem like Ryan just murdered his father as Sharon wasn't in any imminent danger when Ryan killed him. Once the defense rests and the jury goes off to make the decision, Laurel uses her knowledge of the law taint the jury which Annalise later used to get a mistrial which therefore reduced his case to juvenile court.
