Jackson's seven-year, $750,000 fraud

Journalist Lynn Sweet describes the scene in court when former Rep. Jackson Jr. and his wife pleaded guilty to federal charges related to misusing campaign funds from 2005 to 2012. He could be sentenced up to five years behind bars.

"They both had in court a big display of support from their families, and they'll need it," Sweet tells CNN's Jake Tapper. She says the former Illinois Congressman looked pained and was teary-eyed when he admitted his guilt to the judge.

"What we had here was a scheme and a scam that went on for seven years," Sweet says about the  former representative's crime, which went on for longer than most expected. "Trips to Costco, undergarments, toilet paper, and lavish expenses for a health club, trips - it just is a tragic downfall...it got them caught up in a lifestyle they could not afford." The couple also used the money for Michael Jackson memorabilia and a Rolex watch.

Tonight on AC360: Exclusive interview with Reeva Steenkamp's brother

Reeva Steenkamp's family is mourning the loss of the former model who was shot to death in the home of her boyfriend, Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius. Tonight Steenkamp's brother, Adam, reflects on his sister's life and talks about what he and other relatives knew about the type of relationship she had with Pistorius.

"She wanted to make a difference," he tells CNN's Jake Tapper. "She started by making small steps in that right direction." Steenkamp says Reeva, who graduated from law school, wanted to help with the issue of violence against women in South Africa.

Pistorius became an inspirational figure for overcoming his disability and achieving record success as a Paralympic competitor. In the affidavit read by his lawyer in court, Pistorius claims he thought Steenkamp was an intruder and never meant to harm her. The charges against him were upgraded to premeditated murder this week.
