ALL CHARGES HAVE BEEN DROPPED IN JUSSIE SMOLLETT’S RACIAL ATTACK CASE
Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019

In a shocking turn of events, Jussie Smollett’s case has been dropped. On Tuesday morning, Cook County prosecutors  dismissed all 16 felony charges against the Empire actor—stating that they “believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” Chicago Tribune reports. Smollett will surrender his $10,000 bond. His lawyers issued the below statement on his behalf.

“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him.” His lawyers added, “This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.”

Jussie was originally charged with staging a hate crime and filing a false police report. What do you think of Jussie’s charges being dropped? Tune in below to see what our Dish Nation hosts think!
