Jesse Jackson Jr soon to be an ex-con

Life is getting better for another disgraced Illinois politician.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:
Former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., is likely to be transferred from a halfway house in Baltimore to home confinement by the end of June, the Sun-Times has learned.The target date for the transfer is June 22, a source said.Jackson, who pled guilty in 2013 for looting about $750,000 from his campaign funds, left a prison in Montgomery, Ala. last March for the Baltimore facility.

Former Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), Jackson’s wife, who also pled guilty in 2013 for not paying taxes on the looted money, will begin her year-long sentence after Jackson is released from custody. The U.S. Marshall Service and the Bureau of Prisons will assign Sandi Jackson a date to voluntarily surrender – no more than a month after her husband is released from custody.

As of last March, Jackson’s release date was Sept. 20.
However, Junior's uncle, Noah Robinson, is still serving his life sentence for murder-for-hire and racketeering.
