Sandi Jackson pleads guilty to federal charges

Surrounded by her family and with her husband Jesse Jackson Jr. by her side, Sandi Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of filing false tax returns in federal court Wednesday.

sandijacksonJackson, 49, stood emotionally before the same judge that just a few hours earlier her husband stood before and pleaded the same.

She shook her head as the prosecutors read the charges aloud and held a tissue to her face. She was charged

Sandi Jackson was  told to surrender her passport and must travel with restriction, though she is allowed to travel throughout the United States.

Sandi left the court wordlessly and hand in hand with her husband.

She is due back in court for sentencing on Monday July 1 at 2 p.m.

      Why does race has to the be in the equation? Crime doesn't have a color. They deserve everything that they get because they defrauded the communities that they serve and the american government.. I am not a fan of the Jackson family because of their political agenda but there no reason to be ignorant either. You are better than that and better than them b/c atleast you have respect for yourself and others.

      They need to get rid of a lot of politicals. The difference between Jessie and the rest of the politicans is that they didn't get caught. For instance, Mayor Richard Daley has been a crook for a long time now and he just never gotten caught. He will go on TV and tell you what he is not going to discuss or do. The current Mayor is following in the same foot steps. These people are well connected and Jessie and Sandi were not.
