North Carolina – Jesse Jackson Jr. was placed in solitary confinement after a guard allegedly took issue with his advising fellow inmates about their rights. As reported by The Huffington Post, the former congressman who is the son of civil rights activist Jesse Jackson Sr., was awarded a transfer to another facility after challenging his detention, during which he was put in solitary confinement for 5 days.
Jackson was reportedly moved to an Alabama based federal prison facility following the dispute over the guard’s actions. He was cleared of any wrongdoing during a hearing prior to asking to be transferred.
The former congressman had been serving a 30-month sentence at a facility in North Carolina stemming from a case in which he was accused of misusing campaign funds.
