Sandi Jackson to serve sentence in West Virginia, report says

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Former Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson will serve her one-year sentence for falsifying tax returns at a federal prison camp in West Virginia, according to a report.

The Chicago Tribune said it's the same prison that once housed Martha Stewart.

Jackson, 52, is expected to surrender by Oct. 20.

Her husband, ex-Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr., completed on Sept. 18 his sentence for spending $750,000 in campaign money on personal items.

Their sentences were staggered because the couple has two children.

Sandi Jackson served Chicago's 7th Ward from 2007 to 2013.
