Jesse Jackson Jr. Reports to Prison
Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. is now sporting prison stripes. The Chicago Democrat reported to a North Carolina federal prison, where he'll serve 2.5 years for misusing campaign funds.
Jackson was accompanied by his attorney, C.K. Hoffler, and North Carolina Rep. G.K. Butterfield.
Butterfield said Jackson was in good spirits entering the prison, "all things considered."
Jackson's wife, Sandi, will serve a year-long sentence for filing false tax returns once her husband is released.
