Former governor George Ryan is now serving the rest of his prison sentence at his home in Kankakee.
Hi lawyer, former governor Jim Thompson, says he’s with family and “very happy.”
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.
