(CHICAGO) Former Chicago Alderman Sandi Jackson has been released from a federal prison camp.

Jackson, the wife of disgraced former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., reported to a woman’s prison in West Virginia on October 20, 2015, after pleading guilty to filing false income tax returns to cover up her husband’s illegal actions. She was set to be released October 18 of this year.

It’s unclear where she went after being released but generally federal prisoners are placed in a halfway house or sentenced to finish out their prison term under home confinement. The Jackson reside in Washington, D.C.

In February 2013, Jesse Jackson Jr. admitted to violating federal campaign laws by using campaign funds to make personal purchases. He pleaded guilty to one count of wire and mail fraud. He served his jail time ahead of his wife in a deal that staggered their sentences so they could care for their children.
