Jussie Smollett Released on $100k Bond As Prosecutors Bring Actor’s Drug Abuse Into Question

Published: Thursday 21st Feb 2019 by Rashad

Hours after actor/singer Jussie Smollett turned himself in to face charges of ‘filing a false police report’ stemming from the case built around his alleged staged attack (as we reported here), prosecutors are unveiling shocking evidence they’ve gathered so far.

Details inside:

Although defense lawyers insisted Smollett need to get back to work on Empire, the judge today seemed to care less, calling the incident “utterly outrageous” and “despicable” if the actor is found guilty.

The defense fought back, proclaiming Smollett returned to Chicago on Wednesday to face the coming charges and “wants nothing more than to clear his name.”

In court, Smollett was wearing the same clothes he was arrested in earlier in the day. Seen as a possible flight risk, the actor was asked to surrender his passport during the hearing, which lasted just less than 20 minutes. He also was told to hand over $10,000. [source]

As the prosecution laid out the evidence, they also suggested drug abuse was involved.

…prosecutor Risa Lanier said that one of the other individuals involved in the incident, Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo, had, in the past, sold MDMA to Smollett regularly. Osundairo shared with police that Smollett has been purchasing the drug from him for almost a year, starting in the spring of 2018.

Several days before the attack, Smollett sent several text messages to Osundairo, trying to meet for a discussion and possible drug purchase.

If found guilty in this case, Smollett could face up to three years in jail for disorderly conduct and filing a false police report.

    He must be having a mid life crisis… He is getting up there in age.

    Maybe he’d have more money if he wasn’t buying drugs with it. I have a very hard time feeling bad for someone who makes $20,000 an episode.

    Of course! The drugs made me do it!!! This was the only possible angle or mental health that could explain his actions. ??‍♂️ When are people gonna learn that The Verve were right all along; “The drugs don‘t work, they make things worse”. He will probably get probation and rehab and never see a day in jail despite everyone wanting him to rot there for his dispicable behaviour.

    Why is he being charged and the people who called 911 on blacks go Scot free?

    • King z February 22, 2019

      Because he alleged a hate crime and tampered with mail, the latter being a federal offense!

      I’m not justifying the wrongdoings of ppl who call the police for no reason but I’m just saying his crime is worse

    Sorry, but no. I CALL BULLSH*T. THIS. IS. A .SET. UP.

    The Chicago PD has a LONG history of lying, falsifying evidence, intimidating & framing potential witnessess, etc. This is right out of their playbook. I don’t who Jussie pissed off or what he did to p*** someone off, but he is clearly being set up. You’d have to be an idiot not to see it by now.

      Lol

      Let’s look st the facts

      Jussie is going to subway at 2 am during a polar vortex?

      He decided to go to subway… literally 5 minutes after he arrived home…because he was running late for the staged attack

      He claims the dudes were white. But they turn out to be the complete opposite. They weren’t even Puerto Rican or Dominican….they turned out to be the complete opposite of white skinned

      Jussie never dropped his sandwich during the attack…nuff said

      Jussie says he fought back…..pshhhhhhh

      Jussie left the rope around his neck to preserve evidence EVEN THOUGH he says he was not going to report the attack?

      He says they said this is MAGA country…not sure if you have ever been to Chi town but it is NOT MAGA country

      The funniest thing, this far, is that this heinous thought it was a good idea to send a letter made out of magazine clippings….like we are in the 70’s or 80’s. I’m pretty sure that the invention of Microsoft word and the many fonts available has taken a big bite out of the magazine clipping market. What kind of imbecile thinks of these things?

      Unfortunately, this was a story crafted by someone with very little education. The fact that we are supposed to believe him is insulting if you have a brain.

    Lol..what a loser

    EDUCATION is the key my friends. LEARN and become smarter. It’s strange how a culture that vilifies and mocks education has a problem with stupidity.
