Jackson will be sentenced on June 28, according to the Tribune, after spending campaign money on personal items like a Rolex watch, two stuffed elk heads, and Micheal Jackson’s fedora. Jackson’s wife, Sandi Jackson, also pleaded guilty to separate charges of filing false tax returns.

Jackson took a medical leave from Congress in the summer of 2012 for treatment for bipolar disorder, and resigned in November.
