George Ryan Conviction Upheld

The racketeering conviction of former Governor George Ryan, a man who was elected state representative the same year I was, has been upheld.

Here is the Chicago Tribune article about the appellate court decision.

The decision was 2-1 that he had a fair trial.

When the appellate court took the case and allowed Ryan to remain out of prison during his appeal, it said that, if the conviction were upheld, he would be incarcerated almost immediately.
