Supreme Court denies George Ryan appeal
Former Illinois Governor Jim Thompson is one of Ryan’s lawyers.
“The governor’s disappointed and we, his lawyers are disappointed, but we knew it was a long-shot when we filed this last petition.” Ryan was released from prison last month. He’ll be confined to his home - in Kankakee - until he’s done with his sentence in July.
