In addition, The Huffington Post is reporting that the deal may also include jail time
The embattled politician is represented by a former US attorney who is negotiating with the federal government.
The plea deal would end Jackson’s 17-year career as a congressman representing Chicago’s South Side and suburbs.
At the center of negotiations is white-collar criminal defense attorney Dan Webb, who served as Chicago’s top federal prosecutor in the 1980s, when several Cook County judges were indicted for public corruption under the “Operation Greylord” investigation.
Webb, the chairman of Winston & Strawn LLP in Chicago, has been the point person for Jackson in talks with the U.S. Justice Department in Washington.
The tentative deal includes:
– Jackson resigning for health reasons.
– His pleading guilty to charges involving misuse of campaign funds.
– Some jail time
– The congressman’s repayment of any contributions that were converted to personal use, such as home furnishings, improper travel or gifts
