CHICAGO (AP) — George Ryan is about to become the latest Illinois governor to go through a prison door. This time he's headed out.

The 78-year-old Republican has served five-plus years for corruption. Authorities are expected to release him from a prison in Terre Haute, Ind., sometime Wednesday.

He's expected to spend the first few weeks at a halfway house in Chicago and then return to his home in Kankakee, about 60 miles to the southwest.

Once reacclimated to life on the outside, Ryan will discover an Illinois that has grown less tolerant of the kind of wheeling and dealing that led to the imprisonment of him and his successor, Rod Blagojevich.
