WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- An attorney for former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. says his client think his 2 1/2-year prison sentence for misusing campaign funds is fair.
Reid Weingarten told the Associated Press Jackson has come to terms with his wrongdoing and accepted responsibility.
Jackson's wife, Sandi, was also sentenced Wednesday to a year in prison for filing false federal income tax returns.
Her attorney, Dan Webb, says she is grateful for being allowed to serve her sentence after her husband so her children have a parent to take care of them while the other serves time.
