Former U.S. Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. is hoping to be sent to a North Carolina prison or camp in Alabama, according to court documents.
On Monday, Jackson's attorneys filed documents stating that the disgraced politician attended college in North Carolina and has ties to the area, which would "aid his rehabilitation during any term of incarceration."
Jackson is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday for illegally using some $750,000 in campaign funds. His wife, and former Chicago alderman Sandi Jackson, is also set to be sentenced for failing to file income on several years' worth of tax returns.
The U.S. Bureau of Prisons will make the ultimate decision on where Jackson will serve his sentence, which could be up to four years' time. Federal prosecutors are seeking an 18-month sentence for Sandi.
