Jackson Jr. Enters Plea Agreement for Fraud Accusations
Former Illinois U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is now cooperating with federal investigators by entering a plea agreement.
Last year, a federal investigation was launched against Jackson over whether he misused campaign funds. Two months ago, the Chicago Democrat stepped down from Congress.
In the agreement, Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, mail fraud, and making false statements.
He could face up to five years in prison.
