Former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., Wife Sentenced To Prison

WGTV: A federal judge sentenced former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. to 30 months, or about 2-and-a-half years, in prison for misuse of campaign funds.

Talking about Jackson’s illness, she said “this disorder can not begin to explain” the multiple purchases.

During his sentencing hearing, Jackson addressed the court and admitted fault: “I misled the American people; I misled the House of Representatives; I misled the media…I was wrong. I don’t fault anyone.”

Judge Amy Berman Jackson also ruled that Jackson does not have to pay restitution to his former campaign because it is now defunct.
