Ex-gov. Ryan may be released from prison as early as today
Former Governor George Ryan may be released from a federal prison as early as Tuesday.
Ryan served time for official corruption.
His wife and brother died while he was in prison.
Now, Ryan is set to end his incarceration at the prison in Terre Haute, Indiana and move to a halfway house on Chicago’s near West Side.
Former Cicero Town President Betty Loren-Maltese lived there briefly after she got out of prison.
She says the ex-governor’s life is going to change dramatically.
Ryan will live in a dorm-style room like this one.
The building also has a lounge.
Loren-Maltese says the building is old, dirty and crowded, and tenants face head counts, pat downs and less freedom of movement than they had in prison.
