Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert has left the federal prison in Minnesota where he has spent the last 13 months for breaking the law while trying to hide his past sexual abuse of teenage boys, records show.

Hastert, 75, is now under the supervision of a residential re-entry management field office based in Chicago, according to Bureau of Prisons online records. That means he is likely at a halfway house in the region monitored by that office, or he is on home confinement.

Hastert’s official release date had been Aug. 16.

Bureau of Prisons officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment, nor did Hastert’s lawyer.

Once two heartbeats from the most powerful office in the land, Hastert reported in a wheelchair last summer to the Rochester Federal Medical Center, a federal prison in southeast Minnesota for inmates who require medical care. U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin had sentenced Hastert two months earlier to 15 months in prison for breaking the law while trying to conceal his past sexual abuse of teenage boys.

While handing down the sentence, the judge called Hastert a “serial child molester.”

Durkin also sentenced Hastert to two years of supervised release, giving the former speaker three days following his release from prison to report to a probation office.

During his supervised release, Hastert is forbidden from contacting his victims. “If they want to reach out to him, that’s their prerogative,” Durkin said, “but he should never contact them himself.”
