‘The View’ unloads on decision to drop all charges against Jussie Smollett
Mar 29, 2019, 00:17
IL prosecutor Joe Magats said the charges were dropped because Jussie forfeited a $10,000 (£7,600) bond payment and carried out community service.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuelcriticized the prosecutors' decision to drop the charges on Tuesday. "Based on all facts and circumstances of the case, and also keeping in mind resources and keeping in mind that the office's number one priority is to combat violent crime and the drivers of violence, I made a decision to offer this disposition in the case", Joseph Magats said.
It's the prosecution's, the state of IL that chose to come forward and charge Mr. Smollett with 16 counts, 16 separate counts from the same incident. The actor claimed they'd shouted racial slurs and told him: "This is Maga country" - apparently a reference to Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan - as they beat him up.
State's Attorney Kim Foxx, facing a massive public backlash for allowing Smollett to skate on 16 felonies, claimed her office didn't ask for his file to be sealed, but couldn't explain how it had happened, stating it must have been done "inadvertently" and was "probably" in the process of being unsealed.
After he admitted that the investigation has been "one of the worst times" of his entire life, Smollett told reporters that he would like nothing more than to "get back to work and move on with my life".
On Inside the National Basketball Association, he declared - with his co-hosts on TNT laughing after he said it - "Do not commit crimes with checks".
She's believed he is innocent "because I know him and I know his track record".
"The state's attorney's office is saying he's not exonerated, he actually did commit this hoax". She said they discussed training and nutrition as Smollett's flight to Chicago was delayed.
Smollett, who is black and gay, said two men attacked him at night in January, making homophobic and racist remarks and putting a noose around his neck while shouting support for Trump.
Abel Osundairo (L), and his brother Ola Osundairo, the Nigerian brothers were arrested in connection with the alleged attack on "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett but were released after reportedly telling detectives Smollett paid them to stage the attack.
Schmidtsaid in a statement Tuesday: "The Osundairo brothers were fully prepared to testify in any criminal proceeding in the Jussie Smollett case". "Let's get to the bottom of this", he said. Smollett addressed the media after an emergency hearing in Chicago on Wednesday, where he admitted that he's been "truthful on every level" throughout the investigation.
Glandian may wish to brush the Smollett hate hoax under the rug, but Chicago police and the American people will not quickly forget.
