Prosecutor who dropped charges against Jussie Smollett believes he’s guilty
Lawyers with the Chicago police department are trying to determine if they can legally release evidence in the investigation of Jussie Smollett despite a judge sealing the case. Prosecutors cleared him of all 16 felony counts after Jussie served two days of community service and agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond even though the city spent more than $150,000 on his case. State prosecutor Joe Magats said he believes Smollett made up the allegations, but says because it is a non-violent case it would only qualify for community service and a financial penalty. He goes on to say their priority is violent crimes and the cause of violent crime. Meanwhile the FBI is still investigating a threatening letter Smollett allegedly sent to himself in January, so his legal troubles are not over.
