George Ryan on first day of freedom: ‘I feel great’

Former Governor George Ryan is now officially a free man.

He was convicted in 2006 of racketeering and fraud, and was sentenced to six and a half years in prison.

He was released from prison in Terre Haute, Ind. on January 31, 2013, and has spent the last five months confined at his home in Kankakee. He will still have to complete one year of court supervision.
