Former U.S. congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. will have to wait a little longer to find out whether he's going to prison for misusing hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds.
Sentencing for Jackson-scheduled to take place tomorrow morning-was postponed yesterday by a Washington federal judge. According to a court order this afternoon, the hearing is now scheduled for 9:30 a.m. on August 14.
In a brief order, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said tomorrow's hearing would be cancelled and rescheduled to a later date. Jackson, who is not related to the defendant, said neither party had asked for the delay.
Jesse Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty in February to being part of a scheme to defraud his congressional campaign of $750,000. Jackson admitted to misusing campaign funds to pay for personal expenses, including, according to court filings, "high-end electronic items, collector's items, clothing, food and supplies for daily consumption, movie tickets, health club dues, personal travel, and personal dining expenses.
The government has asked that Jackson be sentenced to 48 months in jail and ordered to repay the $750,000 to his campaign. Jackson has asked for a "lenient" sentence below the guideline range of 46 to 57 months in jail.
Jackson's defense team includes Reid Weingarten and Brian Heberlig of Steptoe & Johnson and Harvard Law School Professor Charles Ogletree Jr.
