This is probably part of a plea agreement or non-prosecution agreement with a federal prosecutor.

That was my hunch, too, except I'm having a bit of trouble understanding how anyone in Washington, D.C. could authorize investigating a representative of the Chicago way. Aren't felonies normally swept under rugs?

Only to a degree. In this instance, the House GOP is on the prowl for scandals in the Department of Justice, the Jackson clan had frictions with Obama, and Jesse Jr. had drawn attention to himself and his wife through the Blago scandal, his peculiar hospitalization, and obvious campaign financing derelictions.

As it is, Jackson and his wife seem to be getting off easy. In most such cases of a federal public corruption plea agreement, the feds insist on a publicized arrest, then a written plea agreement and allocution in open court that detail the crimes charged or that could be charged.
