CHARLESTON, SC -

The high profile disagreement between Congressman-elect Mark Sanford and his ex-wife Jenny Sanford has been settled. 

At issue, the politician entered his ex-wife's home without permission and she says it has happened several times.

The couples' divorce settlement states that neither of them are supposed to be in the other's home without permission.

Jenny Sanford filed a complaint and the two were headed to family court on Thursday.  On Wednesday, the Charleston County court confirmed the two agreed to settle. 

The terms of the agreement says in part:

Mark Sanford (defendant) admits he is in contempt for this and previous instances of trespassing upon Jenny Sanford's (plaintiff) property.

The court will withhold sentencing but if Mark Sanford does it again, he will be brought before the court for sentencing.

Mark Sanford will pay for Jenny's court costs which amounts to $5,000.  He has to do so within 30 days.

Court documents also state that failure to comply with an order of the family court can result in up to one year in prison and/or a fine of $1,500 and/or 300 hours upon the public works, or a combination of all three.

Congressman-elect Mark Sanford just won the 1st Congressional District seat on Tuesday May 7th, against Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch.

Sanford, former Governor of South Carolina and Jenny Sanford divorced after Mark Sanford admitted to an extra-marital affair with Argentinian woman Maria Belen Chapur back in 2009. Mark Sanford and Chapur are now engaged to be married.
