The wife of Jesse Jackson Jr. is now an inmate in a West Virginia prison. The former Chicago Alderman, Sandi Jackson started her prison sentence this week at the facility in Alderson, West Virginia. You may recall, she pleaded guilty in 2013, along with her husband, for looting $750,000 in campaign funds and filing false tax returns. Her husband completed his 23-month prison sentence in September and was released to a halfway house. He is currently out of Bureau of Prisons supervision. Regarding their sentences, a judge allowed the the couple to serve them consecutively so that one parent was free to care for their children. Sandi will serve one year at the minimum-security camp that’s been known to house celebrities and other higher profile prisoners such as Billie Holiday and Martha Stewart. During Stewart’s stay there, it was nicknamed “Camp Cupcake.”
