CPD Releases Jussie Smollett Case Documents

New details are emerging about the Jussie Smollett case. Documents released yesterday by the Chicago police department show a top Cook County prosecutor told police detectives she believed the case would end with the Empire actor paying restitution and doing community service. Nearly a month later, prosecutors dropped charges accusing Smollett of staging a racist and homophobic attack on himself in January in Chicago. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson had said he wasn’t aware of the decision to drop charges until the day it happened.
