A federal judge sentenced former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. to 30 months, or 2-and-a-half years, in prison for misuse of campaign funds.
His wife, former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson, was sentenced to 12 months for tax fraud.
In late November 2012, Jackson Jr. resigned from his Illinois Congressional seat in the second district. In January, Sandi Jackson stepped down from her position at Chicago’s 7th Ward alderman.
Both pleaded guilty in February.
On October 29, Jesse Jackson Jr. entered a minimum security prison in North Carolina to begin serving his sentence.
