According to prison guards – along with most of the free – convicts have no rights. So, of course, the guards were naturally peeved with Jesse Jackson, Jr., 49, who informed fellow inmates they indeed had rights and probably advised the prisoners on how to exercise those rights, too.
And so he found himself in solitary confinement for four or five days.
Jackson, Jr., who was serving a 30-month sentence in a North Carolina facility for misusing more than $750K in campaign funds, disputed the confinement and was cleared of any wrong-doing. He was also granted his request to be transferred to an Alabama prison – one he listed as a top choice during his sentencing.
Jackson, Jr. is scheduled to be released Dec. 31, 2015.
