Jessie Smollet was indicted on 16 Felony counts this Friday. Jessie Smollet, Empire actor and outspoken Liberal activist, is under investigation and currently being tried for allegedly hoaxing and orchestrating a hate crime against himself.
He is accused of hiring 2 friends and former cast mates from Nigeria to fake a hate crime against him while he was returning home from a late night run to a local Subway.
Many in the MSM as well as celebrities active in the political spectrum decried the hate crime alleged by Smollet pouncing immediately on the event and attempting to twist it to there political advantage, using it to showcase what they see as the reality of living in the "Trump Era". Yet most have been silent after the recent revelations presumably showing that Smollet orchestrated the entire event in an act to further his career utilizing the uncategorical hate for Trump and his followers to his advantage.

www.nbcnews.com... federal charges are pending as well for the fake letter sent

There are a broad array of federal criminal statutes that protect the U.S. mail, including mailing threatening communications, mailing injurious articles, and even a federal “hoax” statute. Threatening communications contains three elements: First, the defendant threatened to injure someone. Second, the defendant deposited in the mail for delivery by the U.S. Postal Service the threatening communication. And third, the defendant mailed the threat knowingly. “Nonmailable matter” includes “injurious articles,” which means the government must prove that a defendant knowingly caused to be delivered by mail something declared nonmailable, like a harmful substance, but with the intent to injure another person. If Smollett were charged under this statute, he could counter that he never sent anything harmful, and never had the intent to actually injure anyone.
so there is that as well

Well, this certainly is an interesting method to build precedent for "hate crime" legislation. They're doing it in an underhanded way that doesn't appear to be what it is. I would be careful about cheering this. Precedent doesn't care how it was established. All the future cares about is the end result. Remember that. You might be one of the few who will.

Jussie Smollett made a hoax where he accused another race of a crime they did not commit


While also blaming it on a political affiliation and making it as graphic as possible. Said he "punched them back" and was "The Gay Tupac"

Who is the racist/criminal again?

They need to make an example of this guy, even though he did not personally target any person, he did attempt to gain recognition at the expense of starting civil unrest. He needs to go to prison to make an example of people who try to stir things up between the races, he actually is a racist of the worst kind. He's also a spoiled brat.

All I can say is, sweetie, what were you thinking?

We all did stupid stuff when we were young.
I got caned once for throwing over flower pots and a big golf ball-shaped post-box.
Yeah thinking you're invincible.

They knew how to keep us boys in line back then, because the male brain doesn't actually function properly until you're about 25 (hence juvenile males are very useful for war).
And even then it needs occasional guidance.

But what about the society that gave you too many matches to play with too soon?

They are to blame too.

You were over-privileged too soon, and you didn't even have a Kardashian mum to keep you on a tight leash.

I pity you and a big chunk of your generation Jussie - way too privileged, totally inexperienced, only partly socialized (mainly just propagandized) and emotionally incontinent.

What a pity.

Took a little looking, but I found an online copy of the indictment (caution! large .pdf file). it appears every instance of his lying to Muhammed Baig (the investigating officer) is being charged as a different count. That tells me the Chicago DA is seriously PO'd, and it certainly doesn't look like there will be much of a plea bargain in that light... at least not one that will keep him from serving some time. He's looking at 16 charges of lying to a police officer (that's called "Disturbing the Peace" in Illinois and is), a class 4 felony under 720 ILCS 5, Article 26, Paragraph (a)(4):

(a) A person commits disorderly conduct when he or she knowingly:
    (4) Transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed;

The penalty is described in Paragraph (b):

(b) Sentence. A violation of subsection (a)(1) of this Section is a Class C misdemeanor. A violation of subsection (a)(5) or (a)(11) of this Section is a Class A misdemeanor. A violation of subsection (a)(8) or (a)(10) of this Section is a Class B misdemeanor. A violation of subsection (a)(2), (a)(3.5), (a)(4), (a)(6), (a)(7), or (a)(9) of this Section is a Class 4 felony. A violation of subsection (a)(3) of this Section is a Class 3 felony, for which a fine of not less than $3,000 and no more than $10,000 shall be assessed in addition to any other penalty imposed.

A class 4 felony carries a maximum sentence of 1 to 4 years incarceration and/or up to a $25,000 fine, according to the Dolci & Weiland website.

Now, all 16 charges are concerning a lie told to a police officer, so this is going to boil down to either he is guilty of all 16 or innocent of all 16. The police seem to have a pretty cut-and-dried case with reports of video camera footage, testimony from his associates, and even a payment to those associates via personal check. Maybe he'll plead that down to lesser counts, but Illinois has minimum sentencing on a Class 4 Felony of one year per offense.

There are a couple of possibilities that could happen besides jail time: he could be given up to 30 months probation per charge; the sentences could be specified to run concurrent instead of consecutive. There are probably other legal considerations in Illinois that i am not familiar with. But the point is that the DA is going after a maximum sentence of 64 years and $400,000 in fines. They sound serious. While I doubt he will get those maximums, 16 years and $100,000 in fines sounds about right from what I am hearing.

He deserves it, IMO. The man just tried to start a race war in a city already reeling from unending violence, to try and get a raise. He tried to slander every white person in America, and used both his celebrity and the gullibility of the Chicago PD to accomplish his sadistic means to an end. He deserves to be made an example of.

I don’t know enough about the case to comment.
I mean I’ve been following it, but only from one source -Shade45 Sirius radio station.
Sway talks about it everyday.
But from what it sounded like the other day, was that there was evidence coming to light that those two Nigerian gents were lying,
But like I said, that’s from one source only that I’ve been listening to and following.
