We have just received notice from the Court of the following times for the hearings in these matters.

Jesse L. Jackson, Jr. is scheduled to appear in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia at 10:30 a.m. TOMORROW, Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013.

WISE of the Court to segregate the man and wife.

Just think of the possible carnage…!!!

I wonder which of their reversible mink-lined clothing items they’ll decide to wear.

    No doubt they’ll coordinate. And Papa Doc Jessie Seen-ya will no doubt be there wearing something sharp, though contrasting with the kiddos, sporting diamonds and a suitable grave expression, his ol’ fish-eyes watching all side of the room for cameras.

    They’ll get the honeymoon suite at Joliet, I’m guessing, or at least nice digs with the rest of the 947 convicted Illinois politicians.

DH has his office right around there…circus time!

The Chicago Tribune is, apparantly, unaware of Mr. Jackson’s political affiliation:,0,1510803.story

An oversight, I’m sure.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

My guess is that Jesse Jr’s little half brothers will follow in his footsteps.

Sentencings in felony cases–like the Jacksons’–take place about three months after the plea hearing. The U.S. Probation Office gets 70 days in which to prepare a presentence investigation report. The parties get the draft version so they can object to materials they believe is inaccurate and the probation officer has a chance to make corrections. The final, corrected report then goes to the judge. If the probation officer stands on the contested information, the judge must decide whether or not it is appropriate. So it’s not likely that the Jacksons will be sentenced on the day they enter their pleas. /s/ NISquire (my stage name), practicing criminal defense lawyer in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

3 years in a Fed Camp that would make the average Re Hab look like a dungeon.

Wifey gets similar only suspended sentence.

When the law no longer appears to punish the law breaker; contempt for the law and law breaking will become more prevalent. It’s human nature.

Anybody watch a poor parent tell their kid they’re going to be punished but then doesn’t follow through?

Kid just keeps doing it more and any siblings present will mimic same.

Mr. Jackson will certainly be sentenced: he’s plea bargained.

But Sandra Jackson, to my knowledge, has not yet entered a plea. So her hearing tomorrow would be an initial arraignment, would it not?

Someone wiser than me please help out here.

Jesse Jackass, Sr’s final thought to his son after tomorrow:

If my mind can conceive it,
And my heart can believe it,
I know I can achieve it.
My son’s going to prison,
And I don’t believe it.

America is not a blanket
Woven from one thread,
One color, one cloth.
Especially in prison.

At the end of the day,
We must go forward with hope
And not backward by fear and division.
If you drop the soap in prison, don’t pick it up,
For one important reason.

Both tears and sweat are salty,
But they render a different result.
Tears will get you sympathy; sweat will get you change.
Oral sex in prison will get you a pick of cigarettes.

Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Shoulda thought of that before they went to prison.

America needs young people to be inspired to choose sacrifice over greed.
Present company not included.

It is time for us to turn to each other, not on each other.
Except in prison.

We reveal our joys and successes, we conceal our pain.
Except in prison.

Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.
Except in prison.

When they wrote the Constitution, only white male landowners had the right to vote.
But none of them did anything to go to prison.

Any attempt to dilute my support for Sen. Obama will not succeed.
Except now that @#$% didn’t keep my son out prison.

Conservatives and liberals can find common ground.
My son? The exercise yard.

George Bush has met more foreign heads of state than I have. But a substantial number of them were dead.
Then there’s my son, who’s going to prison.

I know how to run a nationally paced campaign.
But I don’t know how to keep my children out of prison.

I take my role seriously as a pastor.
Especially now that my son is going to prison.

I want to make America better!
That’s why I raised my son to go to prison.

If a black doctor discovers a cure for cancer, ain’t no hospital going to lock him out.
Being Jesse Jr. ain’t curing no cancer, they’ll probably keep him locked in.

In many ways Africa subsidised America and Europe’s development.
Did I mention my son’s going to prison?

Most blacks will argue that they excel because of hard work, because of intellect, determination, sweat, blood, tears and risk.
Except my son, who’s going to prison.

The laws are stacked for the wealthy.
That’s why my rich son from a rich father is going to prison.

While I’ve spent a lot of quality time with my children, perhaps it’s not been enough.
Maybe I’ll spend more with Jesse Jr., on visiting day.
