Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. returned to his family's Washington, D.C., home on Monday after leaving a halfway house where he lived for several months since serving 2½ years in prison for spending $750,000 in campaign money on personal items.
Jackson, an Illinois Democrat, was released from the Volunteers of America halfway house in Baltimore in the morning and left in one of two black SUVs that were there for him. He traveled to his home in Washington, where family members say he's expected to stay.
Jackson must spend three years on supervised release under jurisdiction of the U.S. Probation Office and complete 500 hours of community service. He briefly spoke to The Associated Press outside the family's home when asked how he was doing.
