BREAKING: Jussie Smollett Found Guilty On Multiple Counts In Hate Crime Hoax Case

 

After about nine hours of deliberation, a jury has found former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett guilty on counts related to an apparent hate crime hoax he orchestrated in 2019.

Smollett was found guilty on five out of six counts of disorderly conduct. He has not yet been sentenced.

 

Notably, Smollett was late arriving to court after the verdict was reached. The judge gave everyone a 30-minute window to make it back, but the actor came back after that timeframe.

The actor faced a total of “six counts of disorderly conduct under a subsection of the law that prohibits false reports to police,” according to NBC Chicago. The charges were listed as class 4 felonies, “which are among the least serious felonies in Illinois,” the report said, adding that possible “convictions can still carry potential prison time of up to three years.”

The hating racist loses.  Justice.

The bad thing is that he's going to shine skepticism on the very rare hate crimes that do occur.

This is why it's called Trump Derangement Syndrome.

I can name a few posters here that would likley do the same as Smollet if they had the opportunity...except they are cowards. 

The demand for hate and racism far exceeds the actual supply which led this dope to not only fabricate the fictitious crime but he couldn't find any white people to go along with it and outsourced the work to immigrants! Juicy is stupid on so many levels.

LOL. And Juicy's lawyer thinks they're going to win on an appeal!

Jussie Smollett juror says they all IMMEDIATELY knew disgraced Empire star was guilty and that his poor testimony led to his conviction for faking hate crime

  • An anonymous female juror laid out the reasons that she and her peers just didn't find Empire actor Jussie Smollett's case convincing    
  • She said Smollett's defense, which consisted mostly of 'character witnesses,' was far less compelling than the testimonies of the Osundairo brothers
  • The woman also said all 12 jurors were convinced of Smollett's guilt, but spent nine hours deliberating about proving it beyond reasonable doubt  
  • Frank Gatson, Smollett's creative director who allegedly reported the 'hate crime' was on the defense's list of witnesses but never took the stand
  • The juror told the Chicago Sun-Times that she and her peers felt that Gatson's testimony may have given Smollett's claims more weight
  • 'We all wanted to hear from Frank,' she said
  •  She said Smollett's attorney, Nenye Uche, seemed to be 'just shooting from the hip' with her defense strategy compared to the prosecution
  •  Special Prosecutor Dan Webb made the case against Smollett seem 'seamless' with his 'methodical, plodding' style, she said 
  • The jury of six women and six men didn't have major disagreements, she said, but took a careful nine hours to deliberate due to the volume of evidence 
  • Smollett, 39, was convicted of five of six charged counts of felony disorderly conduct for making a false police report about a bogus hate crime on Thursday
  • 'I just hope that [Smollett and his attorneys] know that we went in there with an open mind. I listened to both sides'

 

A juror who tried the Jussie Smollett trial said she and the other 11 members of the panel were immediately convinced of his guilt - and that the actor's poor testimony sealed his fate. 

The jury of six men and six women took nine hours to deliberate, the female anonymous juror said: 'it was not evenly split, but there were some doubters.' 

But, the juror said, they didn't have any major disagreements. Rather, they wanted to be sure that they carefully reviewed the spate of evidence presented during the one-week trial. 

In the end, she said, the jury 'all thought [they] were doing Jussie a favor when they chose to convict the actor of five, rather than six, counts of disorderly conduct. 

 

The female juror, who declined to be named, said that Special Prosecutor Dan Webb was 'methodical' and 'plodding' in his arguments, making the case against Smollett seem 'seamless.'

In comparison, Smollett's attorney Nenye Uche seemed to be 'just shooting from the hip,' and left her unsatisfied with unsubstantiated claims, like the assertion that Nigerian brothers Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo demanded $1 million each from the Empire actor to change their story.  

 

The brothers' testimonies, she said, were more convincing than Smollett - although neither brother was entirely honest, in the jury's estimation.

Smollett's argument could have been bolstered by the testimony of Frank Gatson, who was on the defense team's list of potential witnesses but never took the stand.  

Gatson reported the incident against Smollett's wishes, the openly-gay actor claimed during his day of testimony on Monday, saying that he didn't do so because he is a 'Black man in America' and therefore 'doesn't trust police,' and that he didn't want to be portrayed as the 'f***** who just got his ass beat.'

'We all wanted to hear from Frank,' the juror told the Chicago Sun-Tribune. 

Smollett's defense consisted of character witnesses and three and a half hours of direct examination. 

But, although Smollett detailed his involvement with the brothers, including a sexual encounters at a gay bath house with Abimbola Osundairo, a visit to a strip club with Olabinjo Osundairo, Abel's paid role as his nutritionist and that brothers' offers to become his security guard, he could why two brothers were in his neighborhood that night, if not to commit a staged attack as he'd instructed them to do.
