Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says former Gov. George Ryan (pictured) has served his sentence and it's time to move forward. Quinn spoke Wednesday at an unrelated news conference, the same day Ryan left an Indiana prison. Ryan was released after serving more than five years for corruption.

Quinn says Ryan's corruption case marked a very sad chapter in Illinois history. Ryan was allowed to travel on to his Kankakee home shortly after arriving at a halfway house in Chicago. His attorney, Jim Thompson, says Ryan will still be subject to strict rules at home. He can't leave his house and he can't speak to the media. Thompson says officials decided Ryan didn't require the services halfway houses provide. Those services include making sure ex-cons can use a checkbook. Thompson says Ryan was given retirement status and won't be required to find a job.
