Sandi Jackson concludes prison sentence Tuesday

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.
