CHICAGO — Jesse Jackson Jr., who was a fixture of the political landscape here, and carried the mantal of an iconic name in the civil rights movement, may be going away to prison for a fair amount of time if federal prosecutors have their way.

NPR reports that federal prosecutors in D.C. filed a presentence memorandum Friday recommending four years in prison following his guilty plea this year on criminal charges that he engaged in a scheme to spend $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items.

NPR reported that the feds also suggested an 18-month sentence for Jackson’s wife, Sandra, who pleaded guilty to filing false joint federal income tax returns that understated the couple’s income.

On top of that, the government wants Jackson to pay $750,000 in restitution to the campaign and that Sandra Jackson make a restitution payment of $168,000.
