Former Illinois Gov. George Ryan has finished a year of supervision following his release from home confinement last summer after a prison sentence for corruption convictions.

Ryan was released from prison in January 2013 and was confined at home until last July. At the time his lawyer and friend former Gov. Jim Thompson said Ryan was subject to another year of supervision and some travel restrictions. That ends this week.

Ryan spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times, offering some details of his time in prison and since being released. He says some prison guards “made things a little rough” because they were not happy with his decision as governor to put a moratorium on the death penalty.
