Feds File Charges Against Jacksons, Husband And Wife

ERIC LACH FEBRUARY 15, 2013, 5:49 PM 1014

After months of rumors and reports, the federal charges against former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) and his wife, former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson, became official on Friday.

A document filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia alleged that Jackson Jr. used about $750,000 in campaign funds for his personal benefit. The charges against Jackson Jr. include conspiracy, false statement, mail fraud, and wire fraud.

In a separate document, Sandi Jackson was charged with one count of filing false tax returns.

The charges were filed by the Justice Department in what are called “Information” documents, which are normally used in lieu of a grand jury indictment when a plea agreement has already been worked out with the defendant.

1. That is a shame!

He had potential, but he now will suffer because of his stupidity. He has to pay the piper.
