Fall From Grace

Former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to 30 months in prison, followed by 36 months of supervised release, after pleading guilty to the misuse of $750,000 in campaign funds. His wife, Sandi, a former Chicago alderman, received a one-year sentence and a period of supervised release for an additional year.
