Jesse Jackson Jr., son of the civil rights and former Illinois congressman who pleaded guilty two years ago to misusing $750,000 in campaign money, left federal prison for a Baltimore halfway house on Thursday. WJZ reports.
Jackson said he was “very, very happy” to see his family Thursday as they picked him up in Alabama before his trip to Baltimore. But the real reunion is a ways away. Jackson will stay at Volunteers of America until Sept. 20, after which he will be on supervised release for three years. Sometime after his release his wife, Sandi Jackson, will have to begin her one-year sentence for filing false tax returns.
