Jussie Smollett has just been cleared for allegedly filing a false police report, according to sources, and his record has been wiped clean.
Jussie’s lawyers said:
“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public, causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”
As for the reason why the charges were dropped, the State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s office said:
“After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case.”
Jussie was facing 16 felony counts of lying to police in the alleged racial and homophobic attack.
