Halfway House: Ryan Still has Year of Supervision

CHICAGO (AP) -- A halfway house manager who processed the paperwork releasing George Ryan from home confinement says the former Illinois governor will still be subject to one year's supervision.

Bob Ciulla says the 79-year-old arrived at the Chicago halfway house after 7 a.m. Wednesday. He says Ryan was well organized, so it took just 20 minutes to fill out the necessary forms.

He says Ryan was visibly relieved. Ciulla says he was "clearly happy to have this part of his life behind him."

Ryan must meet a probation officer periodically -- though Ciulla didn't know how often.

Wednesday ended more than five 1/2 years in federal custody for Ryan's corruption offenses. In January, he was released from an Indiana prison and was moved to confinement at his Kankakee home.
