Hastert leaves fed pen for

He spent the last 13 months there for breaking the law while trying to hide his past sexual abuse of teenage boys, records revealed.

It was not immediately clear whether Hastert would finish the remainder of his sentence in a halfway house or under house arrest. He was sentenced to 15 months in prison in 2016 in a case that revealed he sexually abused teenagers while coaching at an IL high school.

In addition to the prison sentence, Hastert also was eventually ordered to pay $250,000 to a victims fund.

Despite admitting to sexually abusing boys while working as a teacher and coach at an IL high school, he was never charged for any sexual crimes because the state's prior statute of limitations law barred prosecution. Hastert's release date is listed as August 16.

The Bureau of Prisons said in an email that Hastert left the Minnesota prison on Monday and is now "under the jurisdiction" of a Chicago residential re-entry management office.

Most oil players losing confidence in the market, IEA says
For all of 2017, total demand is now forecast at 98 million barrels a day, up by 1.4 million barrels a day compared to 2016. This situation can be detrimental for established firms under upgrade, such as Saudi Aramco and its anxiously awaited IPO.

Hastert could not be prosecuted for the sex abuse because the statute of limitations had run out.

Keen investigative work by the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Attorney's Office eventually discovered Hastert had agreed to pay $3.5 million in hush money to one individual in exchange for the former student's silence. "I'm not going to look back on it". At the request of authorities, Hastert secretly recorded two calls to Individual A to catch him making threats, but agents soon realized it was Hastert who was lying. At least four other students involved in the wrestling program, including an equipment manager who is deceased, alleged at some point their coach sexually abused them in the 1960s and 1970s. He sat in a wheelchair during his sentencing and used a walker to deliver a statement. "You know, why it's - why would a rational person be taking out $9,000 over a three-year period of time more than 100 times", James Robnett, the IRS criminal investigation special agent in charge, said.

Cross, a former wrestler, testified that he was abused when he was in the school locker room.
