Family members of former Illinois Gov. George Ryan look on as Ryan's attorney, former Illinois Gov. Jim Thompson, talks to the media outside the Ryan home in Kankakee, Ill., Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, where the 78-year-old Ryan will be under home confinement following his release from prison. Ryan was released from a federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind., Wednesday after serving more than five years for corruption. But in a move that took many by surprise, he was allowed to travel on to his Kankakee home shortly after arriving at a halfway house in Chicago. (AP Photo/The Daily Journal, Scott Anderson)
