All charges have been dropped against Jussie Smollett in staging an alleged attack on him due to homophobia and race. He was indicted in 16 felony charges. However all the charges against him were dropped. The prosecutors said he does not have a criminal record, he has done 16 hours of community service and forfeited his 10,000 bond.
A lot of people are shocked that he gets to walk away scotch free and not face any repercussions due to his actions. He has wasted a lot of valuable police time, when they could have been focusing on real crimes. However Jussie Smollett still maintains his innocence. He said “I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mothers son if I was capable of one drop of what I’ve been accused of”. He said he wants to move forward with his life and continue to fight for justice, equality and marginalized people.
I guess we will never know his real involvement in this. However the evidence found against did not look good. I hope he looks at this as a second chance and does good with it.
