Former Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. was helping others in prison and had some kind of dispute with prison officials because of that after being placed in solitary confinement.

The 49-year-old former Chicago congressman had been advising other inmates in North Carolina about their rights in prison, according to the source, who said a guard took exception to that.

As a result, the longtime South Side politician was placed in solitary confinement for four or five days more than a month ago, the source said.

Jackson was cleared of any wrongdoing and asked for a transfer to another prison.
