Jesse Jackson Jr. could be home as early as today to serve the last three months of his prison term on home detention, sources told the Tribune.
Jackson, 50, a former Democratic congressman from Chicago, entered prison on Oct. 29, 2013, after he was convicted for misuse of about $750,000 in campaign funds. He spent the money on vacations, furs, celebrity memorabilia, everyday goods and two mounted elk heads.
He entered a halfway house in Baltimore on March 26 after spending about 17 months in federal prisons in North Carolina and Alabama. His wife, Sandi, 51, a former Chicago alderman, has been ordered to spend one year in prison and may land in a federal facility in Marianna, Fla. She is to surrender voluntarily 30 days after Jackson is no longer under Bureau of Prisons supervision Sept. 20. Sandi Jackson was convicted for failing to report most of the couple’s haul on income tax returns. They have a home near Washington’s Dupont Circle and another on Chicago’s South Side.
Jesse Jackson Jr., son of civil rights leader the Rev. Jesse Jackson, served in Congress from 1995 until he quit in 2012 amid a federal investigation.
