Jussie Smollett Indicted for Lying to Chicago Police

12 Feb

Celebrities escape culpability for misdoings all the time –except when they’re black men.  Jussie Smollett can’t get a break. After all charges against him (he was accused of staging a hate attack on himself) were dropped in March 2019, the former Empire actor has found himself in a help of trouble yet again. He faces 6 new charges of being black “disorderly conduct.”

Screen Shot 2020-02-12 at 7.15.16 AMDan Webb, the special prosecutor assigned late last summer to investigate how Chicago prosecutors handled the case, said in a statement he was going to further prosecute Smollett. Chicago Police and the city’s mayor have stood by their case against Smollett – and accused the courts of letting him “off scot-free” last year. As with with O.J., and Cosby, they won’t stop fishing until they see his black face in jail get the conviction that they want.

Smollett is now charged with “making four separate false reports to Chicago Police Department officers related to his false claims that he was the victim of a hate crime, knowing that he was not the victim of a crime,” Mr Webb said.

He added that his office had obtained “sufficient factual evidence” to argue that prosecutors were wrong to drop the case last year.

Smollett is due in court on February 24th.

The city has also sued the actor in a civil suit, seeking payment of more than $130,000  for overtime paid to officers involved in investigating his claims. Smollett has filed a counter suit.
