Jesse Jackson Jr. submits prison location preferences

August 12, 2013 (CHICAGO)

Jackson is requesting facilities that would keep him close to his wife and children during incarceration.

If he serves time at a minimum security facility, he's asking to do time in Montgomery Alabama, because it's the closest such facility.

If he's assigned to a federal correctional institution, he's requesting Butner-Low in North Carolina.

Jackson's wife, Sandi will also be sentenced on Wednesday.
