Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) and his wife, Sandra, will appear in federal court Wednesday to answer criminal charges in an alleged scheme to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items.
Both have agreed to plead guilty in deals with federal prosecutors.
Jackson is charged with conspiracy and his wife with one count of filing false joint federal income tax returns for the years 2006 through 2011 that knowingly understated the income the couple received.
