Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL), “who pleaded guilty to misspending about $750,000 in campaign funds, will learn today how much his crime will cost him,” the Chicago Tribune reports.
“A federal judge will sentence Jackson on a felony conspiracy count and also will sentence his wife, Sandi, on a related charge of failing to report about $600,000 in taxable income.”
“Prosecutors want him to serve four years in prison and her 18 months. Defense lawyers want probation for her and a lighter term for him. If both get prison terms, they are expected to be served consecutively so that either the husband or wife is free to care for their two children, ages 9 and 13.”Save to Favorites
