The Weekend Desk Report

Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to sentence Sandi Jackson to 18 months in prison to be served prior to a a four-year prison term they are asking for her husband, Jesse Jr., so their kids won't have both parents in prison at the same time.

The Jacksons, on the other hand, will suggest to the judge that the best way to ease the transition and maintain some normalcy would be for Sandi to serve in prison in Chicago during the week and then return to their Washington home to tend to the kids over the weekend, and for Junior to serve in prison in Chicago over the weekend after tending to the kids in Washington during the week.

Also, a third of Junior's prison commissary fund would go to Sandi for consulting fees.
