New judge assigned for Jackson sentencing
A new judge has been seated to sentence former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife Sandi.
Judge Amy Jackson, no relation, once defended another convicted Congressman, Louisiana Democrat William Jefferson, against charges of official corruption.
The Jacksons admitted looting the Congressman’s campaign fund to support a lavish lifestyle, and not reporting it to the IRS.
Jackson could get five years in prison; his wife could get two years.
