George Ryan finishes supervision after prison term

By The Associated Press
KANKAKEE - Former Gov. George Ryan has finished a year of supervision following his release from home confinement last summer after a prison sentence for corruption convictions.

Ryan was released from prison in January 2013 and was confined to his home until last July. At the time his lawyer and friend former Gov. Jim Thompson said that Ryan was subject to another year of supervision and some travel restrictions. That ends this week.

Ryan spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times in a story published Wednesday, offering some details of his time in prison and since being released. He says some prison guards "made things a little rough" because they were not happy with his decision as governor to put a moratorium on the death penalty.

Ryan, a Republican, was convicted in 2006.

The team invited the retired farmer back to deliver the game ball and pose on the field with members of the team before the June 8th game with Miami. His funeral is today in Loda.
