It was a busy day for Ryan. He was released from a federal prison camp in Terre Haute, Indiana around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

He checked into a halfway house on Chicago’s West Side just before 7 a.m. , and was let go less than an hour later.

The Bureau of Prisons told Ryan he would be sent home Tuesday as he was released from the prison in Indiana.

    I agree with t.mac, enough about Ryan, he's paid his dues, the media scrutiny is a sentence within itself.

    Just what makes him any different from other politicians who have served federal time? So what? They let him go home without having to be fitted for an ankle bracelet. Make him do what any other person would have to do.

    Poor guy, he's lost his wife, brother, reputation, and common decency. But at least he did not lose 6 children like that family whose van was demolished by one of many illegally licensed truck drivers so that Lyin' Ryan could have a nice vacation.

      Yeah he should have been sentenced longer and he should have not been allowed to see his wife on her death bed – special treatment is not given to anyonw else who is locked up and loose a loved one. They can't go say good-bye – lucky if the family has enough money to pay to have them go see the body before the funeral

    not to negate the fact that 6 innocent children died because of, B.S. that should not have ever transpired.. but personally the whole, the whole issue for him might have been his decisions on the death row.

    Who said that his release was ground breaking news? This is not news to me. Rather not important news.
