CHICAGO (WLS) --After a trip to prison and time in home confinement, former Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson walked free Tuesday.
Jackson served 11 months of a 1-year sentence in federal prison in West Virgina for filing false income tax returns. Last month, on her 53rd birthday, she was released into a halfway house in the Washington D.C. area. Tuesday is her scheduled release date.
Her husband, former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., also spent time in prison. He served two and a half years for fraud. He was released before his wife started serving her sentence, so he could care for the couple's two children.
The Jackson were found guilty of using $750,000 in campaign money to fund a lavish lifestyle.
