Smollett Sentenced

I admit it… I thought he’d get away with it.

(CNN)Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was sentenced Thursday to 30 months of felony probation, ordered to pay restitution of more than $120,000 and a $25,000 fine and spend 150 days in jail for making false reports to police that he was the victim of a hate crime in January 2019.


After the judge announced his sentence, Smollett lowered his face mask and said he was innocent. “Your honor, I respect you and I respect the jury, but I did not do this,” the actor told the judge, before turning to the court. “And I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself. And you must all know that.”


Just before he was taken into custody, the actor yelled again that he was innocent and raised a fist in the air.

    When you perjure yourself on the stand during your trial, you will pretty much will spend some time in jail.

    From the judge:”You really craved the attention…You wanted to make yourself more famous, and for a while it worked.” 
    “You were throwing a national pity party for yourself,” Linn said. The judge also told Smollett that a side of him is “profoundly arrogant and selfish and narcissistic.” 
    ounds like just about every state and federal politician and the fake doctor Fauci and the head of the CDC

    If Smollett’s aim was to raise his profile he’s certainly achieved his goal. It didn’t go according to plan, but everyone recognizes his name now. I’m not sure his conviction and jail time isn’t a career enhancer for him. You’d think a good publicist/talent agent would get him at least some mileage out of all this.

    I like when he was suicidal and that if anything happened to him, like being Clintoned, he didn’t kill himself.
    The only thing that will happen in prison to him is if he becomes somebody’s bitch in jail.
    Otherwise, who will care?

    “Otherwise, who will care?”

    Otherwise? I won’t care either way.
