Ryan, Cellini likely to meet in Indiana prison
One's on his way in and the other's on his way out.
Newly imprisoned Springfield businessman William Cellini and long imprisoned former Gov. George Ryan are likely to meet in coming days at a Terre Haute, Ind., penitentiary.
Cellini reported there Tuesday to start a yearlong sentence for corruption. Ryan has nearly finished a 6Ĺ-year corruption sentence.
Bureau of Prison's spokesman Chris Burke says no rules would bar them meeting and that they're likely to.
For decades, Cellini was a clout-heavy businessman known as the "King of Clout." Onetime Ryan aide Scott Fawell said Ryan and Cellini are friends and that Cellini raised campaign money for Ryan.
They have more in common than being in the same prison. Both are Republicans and both are 78 years old.
