(CBS) – It’s looking likely that former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr.’s sentencing on political corruption charges will be delayed.
Jackson, who pleaded guilty to misusing campaign funds, had been scheduled to learn his fate at the beginning of July. But questions raised in court Friday could keep him out of prison for at least a little while longer, CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports.
The issues: Jackson’s mental health and what evidence the defense plans to present about his bipolar disorder. Prosecutors want to know, but Jackson’s attorneys declined to tell them.
