Former Illinois Governor George Ryan A Free Man

Updated:

Former Illinois Governor George Ryan is officially a free man.

The 79-year-old spent more than five years in prison for corruption and in January he was moved to home confinement.

A federal bureau of prisons spokesman says Ryan was released this morning, one day ahead of schedule.

He was sentenced to six and a half years in prison back in 2007, convicted of racketeering, conspiracy, tax fraud and making false statements to the FBI.

Ryan's sentence was reduced, for good behavior.
