J. Jackson reports to prison today

CHICAGO (AP) — Former Illinois U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has reported to a North Carolina federal prison to serve a 2 1/2-year prison term for misusing campaign funds, a prison official said today.

Jackson, who pleaded guilty in February to conspiring to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses, reported to Butner Correctional Center near Raleigh, N.C., said Ed Ross, another prison spokesman.

Jackson’s wife, Sandi, was sentenced to a yearlong sentence for filing false tax returns. In a concession to their two school-aged children, the judge allowed the Jacksons to stagger their sentences.

In her sentencing order written earlier this year, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington said he would have “to surrender for service of sentence no earlier than Nov. 1, 2013.” Jackson asked to serve his time in Alabama, while his wife’s attorney said she’d prefer a Florida prison. The U.S. Bureau of Prisons decided where Jackson is serving his term.

The son of a famed civil rights leader, Jackson, a Democrat, entered Congress in 1995 and resigned last November.

Jackson’s inmate number is 32451-016.
