Jackson Transferred to Different Prison

Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) "has been moved from a federal prison in North Carolina to a minimum-security prison camp in Montgomery, Ala., after clashing with prison officials and being placed in solitary confinement," a source told the Chicago Sun-Times.

"The 49-year-old former Chicago congressman had been advising other inmates in North Carolina about their rights in prison, according to the source, who said a guard took exception to that."
