Jesse Jackson, Jr has been sentenced to 2.5 years in prison for looting. Jackson stole $750,000 in campaign funds. During sentencing, Jackson immediately broke down and was barely able to speak as he asked the judge for prison time, including taking whatever sentence his wife gets, saying, “If probation is not available for her, give me her time.” Prosecutors asked for at least four years of jail time.
