After confusion, Jackson Jr. enters federal prison this morning
Convicted former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. entered Butner Federal Correctional Complex in North Carolina just before 10 a.m. Chicago time today, according to the Bureau of Prisons.
“He is in our custody, as of about a minute ago,” bureau spokesman Chris Burke said.
Jackson had tried to report to the prison near Durham on Monday, four days earlier than a judge had ordered, but he was turned away. Burke did not know what transpired to let Jackson enter custody today.
