Jesse Jackson Jr Sentenced
Jesse Jackson Jr plucked tissue after tissue from a box on the lectern as he wiped away tears while addressing the court at his sentencing yesterday.
Jackson’s wife Sandra was also sentenced for her part in the theft of $750,000. in campaign funds.
Judge Amy B. Jackson sentenced Jesse to 30 months, and Sandra got 12. They’ll be allowed to serve their prison terms consecutively so that their children have a parent at home.
