Jackson Jr., wife Sandi arrive to federal courthouse in Washington
Jesse Jackson and his wife Sandi Jackson have arrived to the federal courthouse in Washington DC where they will be sentenced today.
Jackson diverted congressional campaign money for his personal use.
His wife failed to report $600,000 in income.
Prosecutors want a 4-year prison sentence for Jackson, a year and a half for his wife.
This morning, Jackson may argue that his bipolar disorder entitles him to a light sentence.
Sentencing guidelines will be spelled out at 8:30 a.m. today in Washington.
The Jackson’s will appeal for leniency, and then a decision will be handed down.
If both get prison time, they’ll serve one at a time, so someone will be home to care for their children.
