Jackson's lawyers expect to submit letters from two "medical professionals," which lawyer William Drake says could give the public "intimate details" of Jackson's health.

He faces nearly five years in prison when he's sentenced in July after pleading guilty to misusing $750,000 in campaign money.

The Democrat resigned last November, citing health concerns and acknowledging he was under federal investigation.
