Former Congressman Jesse Jackson Junior is released from a Baltimore halfway house. He had moved into the facility in March after being released from a federal prison in Alabama.

The Illinois Democrat pleaded guilty in 2013 to spending campaign money on personal items.

He must spend three years on supervised release and complete 500 hours of community service.

Jackson’s wife must report to prison by the end of the year after admitting to filing false joint tax returns. A judge allowed the Jacksons to stagger their sentences so one parent could be there for their children.
