Former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. was released Monday from a Baltimore halfway house to home confinement.
Jackson Jr. has a home in Washington, D.C. and on Chicago's South Side. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Jackson Jr. will probably serve the last three months of his prison term in home confinement at his Washington, D.C. residence.
Jackson Jr. has been serving a federal sentence since October 29, 2013 for stealing some $750,000 from his campaign fund. He was also involved with wire fraud and conspiracy to make false statements. Former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson will head to prison soon after her husband's release, scheduled for September 20, for acting alongside her husband and failing to file taxes on the money.
