Jussie Smollett’s Lawyer Responds To Actor’s 16 Felony Count Indictment: ‘We Will Push Back Against It’ [Video]

Published: Friday 8th Mar 2019 by Rashad

A Chicago grand jury sent shock waves through the entertainment industry hours ago when it was announced actor/singer Jussie Smollett – originally indicted on just one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office (as we reported here) – had seen that count upped to 16!

Shortly after the news rocked headlines, Jussie’s high powered attorney Mark Geragos – who has represented the likes of Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, and Usher in the past – took to the press to offer his reaction to the news.  Also offering updates on Smollett’s emotional status, thoughts on the Chicago police department’s handling of the case, and more, look inside for Geragos’ stern reflection on the case details to date:

    I still support Jussie and I will pray for him. I do believe if you do the crime then you should do the time (in jail) but 16 counts for filing an alleged fake police report seems a bit extreme.

Let’s not forget he started all of this with his corny behind! Then he had plenty of time to come clean 🧼 and he didn’t smh…now 16 felony counts today for that black asss!

      One crime doesn’t negate the other.

      • Fancy BISH March 9, 2019

        Exactly ✅ And Jussie tried to benefit from that racial inequality and all of our fears when he made that story up…people were crying for him, calling it a modern day lynching…Lee Daniels broke his ashy ankles running to the hospital in flip flops like “oh lawd my baby no” lol…then we see that picture of that lil scratch under his eye…then the interview that is SO cringe…he actually told Robin the two guys walking that night were indeed his attackers! He’s not stupid…he’s STOOPID 😂

      • Jasmine March 9, 2019

        I agree 100% BUT….I think Lee Daniels had something to do with this too. The whole story sounds like a bad Lee Daniels script. Jussie has to take the blame because as adults we have a legal duty to know right from wrong so filing the fake police report is where he went wrong and now he must take accountability for his wrong by either paying a fine or doing some jail time or both.

      • Fancy BISH March 9, 2019

        @Jasmine, I agree Lee Daniels absolutely had something to do with it!

      • Oh Well March 9, 2019

        TROLLmine you’re such a hypocrite when are you going to come forward and take the blame about your dumb self lying about being this big time model..?

  5. Oh Well March 9, 2019

    Why hasn’t he hired a black lawyer and supported the black working man, it’s the least he can do seeing that he F’ed up black history month for us.

  6. The Chosen March 9, 2019

    Jussie will be alright. We love you Jussie! He only harmed himself and nobody else!
