Home confinement: George Ryan released from halfway house

Former Illinois Governor George Ryan's stay at West Side Chicago halfway house was brief--just a few hours. He's headed home to Kankakee, the Chicago Tribune is reporting. Halfway houses can be scary places--as his former aide Scott Fawell told ABC 7 Chicago last week. Worse in fact, than the minimum security prison Ryan was released from this morning.

Oh, the Trib reports that Ryan already knew he was headed home--where he will serve the remaining five months of his sentence.

The GOPer was enmeshed in a licences-for-bribes scandal while he was Illinois' secretary of state.
