A court filing last month indicated that Jackson had agreed to sell his Washington, D.C. house to help settle the total amount he owes as part of the plea agreement he entered into in February. 

According to The Chicago Tribune, Jackson's D.C. house is worth almost $1.3 million, and is not currently listed on the market.
