There are signs that former congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. may be leaving Chicago.

Moving trucks were spotted outside Jackson's home on Wednesday. He and his wife Sandi will be sentenced later this year on charges related to the misuse of campaign funds and improper filing of taxes.

Jackson pleaded guilty in February to spending $750,000 in campaign funds on personal items. He faces up to five years in prison for those charges.

He resigned last year after a long medical leave to treat bipolar disorder.
