Ex-military couple faces 3rd sentencing in child abuse case



NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A former Army major and his wife convicted of abusing their foster children face another sentencing after a federal appeals court ruled their earlier sentences were too lenient. Federal prosecutors sought prison terms of 15 years or higher when John and Carolyn Jackson were convicted on multiple counts of child endangerment in 2015, but a judge gave them probation and two years, respectively. That sentence was voided by an appeals court and the same judge sentenced them again in 2018. Last month, the appeals court sent the case back again for resentencing, ruling the judge mistakenly concluded that prosecutors hadn't proved the children's injuries were directly caused by their parents.
