Ex-Governor Ryan: "I Pray Every Day for the Willis Children"

(Chicago, IL)  --  Former Governor George Ryan is officially a free man today after completing probation and a previous five year prison sentence on corruption charges.  He told the "Chicago Sun Times" that he prays every day for the Willis children.  In 2008, the six kids died in a crash after their van ran over a piece of steel that fell from a truck, which caused the gas tank to explode and set the vehicle on fire.  Later, an investigation uncovered that the driver of the truck had gained his driver's license at a Secretary of State facility through a rigged testing system.  Ryan headed the Secretary of State's office at that time.
