He'll walk. Privilege. So he was given a plea deal, did what he was supposed to do but now the new prosecutor is trying to go to court anyway and the judge is letting it happen? I despise Juicy for what he did but the law is the law. This is trash You can fix a lot of things but stupid isn’t one of them. There is no fixing that😂

The whole thing is so crazy. I live in the building in the background of that first video and was curious why police were there the following day. I can’t see a scenario where he didn’t plan the whole thing - really sad the city wasted so much on this “attack”. He should pay should face the same punishment as all other hate crimes.

Waste of jury time He lied. now he should pay the price Who? N Who care at this point?

Jussie Smollett's case will move forward after dismissal request is deniedActor Jussie Smollett's criminal case, related to allegations he lied to police about being the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime, to move forward after judge denies his dismissal request. And I thought it was over!!!!! He needs to be held responsible for this. It causes people to become suspicious of everyone making these claims when people like him do this. I would LOVE to know what his legal tab up to this point is. He could have avoided all this by being honest from the beginning and allowing his lawyer to plea bargain for him. He probably would be back working again.
