Jesse Jackson Jr. May Be Facing Jail Time In Plea Deal


A former Illinois congressman has reportedly agreed to a plea deal that could put him behind bars for years. Several Chicago media outlets say Jesse Jackson, Jr. has signed a plea agreement in which he would admit wrongdoing for converting campaign dollars for personal use.

 

Jackson would have to repay hundreds of thousands of dollars that he spent on things like a $40,000 Rolex and travel expenses for a woman described as a “social acquaintance.” Some details are reportedly still being finalized, including the fate of Jackson’s wife, former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson, who has also been implicated in the misuse of campaign funds.
