Jesse Jackson Jr.

Jesse Jackson Jr. could be home as early as Monday to serve the last three months of his prison term on home detention, sources told the Tribune. Jackson, 50, a former Democratic congressman from Chicago, entered prison on Oct. 29, 2013, after he was convicted for misuse of about $750,000 in campaign funds. He spent the money on vacations, furs, celebrity memorabilia, everyday goods and two mounted elk heads.

He entered a halfway house in Baltimore on March 26 after spending about 17 months in federal prisons in North Carolina and Alabama.
