The former congressman's sentencing was rescheduled on Friday. He was to be sentenced on June 28 but now will appear on July 1. Sandi Jackson was already scheduled to be sentenced that day. Jesse Jackson Jr. pleaded guilty in February to misuse of $750,000 in campaign money. He faces up to nearly five years in prison.
