August 1, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. has told a federal court he will make his 'best efforts' to pay a $750,000 forfeiture within the next three to six months.
Jackson pleaded guilty to using campaign funds for personal expenses. His sentencing is scheduled for August 14th.
