Celebrity News: Federal charges filed against Jesse Jackson Jr., wife

Sisters, this is an update regarding Jesse Jackson Jr.'s wife, Sandi.  She has been charged and prosecutors have requested a much shorter time in prison than her husband.  As you probably already know, Jesse and Sandi allegedly spent about $750,000 from campaign funds.   These are very serious charges and although the prosecutors may suggest the couple spend a certain amount of prison time, the judge has the last say, according to MyFoxChicago.com.

Jesse Jackson, Jr. already made a plea deal and allegedly, prosecutors are recommending a sentence of 46 to 57 months, almost the maximum 5 years.   For his wife, Sandi could face 3 years behind bars and $100,000 in fines.   She was charged today with one count of filing false joint federal income tax returns for the years 2006 through 2011.

We are going to continue to pray for this prominent couple and pray God be with the both of them as they face the judge and jury.   The judge may have the last say, but there is a higher judge, in charge of every man in a superior position.  Furthermore, our prayers are with the entire family.
