Prosecutor Still Believes Jussie Smollett Is Guilty Despite Dropped Charges

Smollett pleaded not guilty to 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for filing a police report regarding the initial incident. Besides forfeiting his bond payment, Smollett also did community service, Magats said.

Chicago's mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke out on "Good Morning America" Wednesday morning, saying, "He's an actor, a person of influence". "Based on all facts and circumstances of the case, and also keeping in mind resources and keeping in mind that the office's number one priority is to combat violent crime and the drivers of violence, I chose to offer this disposition in the case", Joseph Magats said.

Smollett maintained his innocence as he addressed the media on Tuesday after charges were dropped.

Smollett claims that on January 29, masked white attackers wearing MAGA hats had screamed, "This is MAGA country!" before seizing him, putting a noose around his neck, and pouring an unknown bleach-scented liquid on him.

On Wednesday, Foxx's office sought to defend its actions by compiling a list of other cases in which felony charges were dropped, according to CBS 2 Chicago, which cited an internal email.

Smollett said the letter contained a violent threat and homophobic slur€ in cutout magazine letters with a drawing of a crude stick figure hanging from a tree. Chicago police said they were blindsided by charges being dropped. The prosecutor, First Assistant State's Attorney Joe Magats, said thousands of cases have similar resolutions.

"Two and a half weeks later, they made the decision to voluntarily discontinue the action altogether", she said.

She's believed he is innocent "because I know him and I know his track record". The evidence they uncovered pointed to a hoax perpetrated by Smollett. Chicago PD delivered a trove of documentation on the case to reporters in response to a FOIA request before the record was sealed, though an additional gag order has reportedly kept an "8 inch thick" investigative file back from that document dump.

The Department of Justice should investigate Kim Foxx for many reasons.

But she said Smollett had no idea who attacked him until the brothers were later identified by police.

When pushed on what incentive brothers had to stage the attacked, Schmidt said, "If you're friends, and I'm saying "Hey, I'm going to pay you for training, I'm also asking you to do me a favor" ... and the favor was to stage the attack". "I just thought it was odd from day one".
