Breaking: Jussie Smollett to Be Released from Jail

Published: Wednesday 16th Mar 2022 by Sam

Jussie Smollett is set to walk free from a Cook County jail just days after beginning his five-month sentence for faking a hate attack.

Full story below…

According to TMZ, the former ‘Empire’ actor will be released to mount his appeal against his conviction for orchestrating the January 2019 incident.

The star has always maintained his innocence.

Time will tell if his appeal to overturn the conviction succeeds. However, in the here and now, a judge has granted a motion submitted by his defense team to have him released.

Smollett will need to post a bond of $150,000, which he is expected to do, prior to being let go.

In the time since the custodial order was handed down, a number of notable names – such as Jurnee Smollett and Taraji P. Henson – called for his release and deemed the jail sentence harsh and racially charged.

Smollett’s team also claimed he was in physical danger in jail after several threats from the outside; he was also said to be immunocompromised and at heightened risk of contracting COVID-19.

    I hope his appeal gets denied so that he can serve MORE time. He’s such a sourpuss.

    His mugshot looks like a dead-eyed sociopath with just the slightest hint of a serial killer self-satisfied smile. Whatever, if this means we never have to hear about this punk again, then fine. But it won’t be, so f*** him.

    How can someone “inside” be in physical danger based on threats from the outside? Is the threat reduced by him being on the outside, where said threats stem from? What q farce.

    I’ve never heard of a regular person being set free just because they filed a sentencing appeal. Again, he is getting special treatment because he is rich.

      It wouldn’t have gone this far if he wasn’t rich

    I’m glad he was released , I have seen murderers get out of a jail sentence. look at the fool who murdered travon Martin never convicted. He should have got the death penalty and y’all worried about something Jussie smolett said??? That is petty. He didn’t deserve jail time.
