Jackson Jr. pays $200,000 of $750,000 judgment

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Court records show that former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has paid $200,000 toward his $750,000 forfeiture judgment.

Jackson is serving prison time after admitting to illegally using campaign money. A Monday federal court filing from prosecutors and his defense attorneys says Jackson gave the U.S. Marshals Service a $200,000 check on Oct. 25. Jackson admitted spending $750,000 of donors' money on more than 3,000 personal items.

Previously Jackson's attorneys and federal prosecutors said the Chicago Democrat plans to sell his home in Washington to help pay the forfeiture. Monday's filing said the court would next receive a status report on Jackson's payments on May 15. There is no fixed deadline to pay the judgment in full.

The 48-year-old entered prison last week to begin serving his 2 1/2-year term.
