For the average person, being convicted of a felony means going to prison to serve a sentence. For “special” people like Jussie Smollett, with the backing of powerful Democrats like Michelle Obama, convictions mean freedom through the appeal process so he could direct a movie and hang out with Hollywood’s top wokesters.
Now, it appears Smollett may serve the remainder of his tiny 150-day sentence for sparking race wars through his infamous hate hoax. The important word there is “may.” According to TMZ, losing his appeal does not necessarily mean he’s going to jail like normal people.
Jussie Smollett just took a big L in court … because his conviction for his hoax attack was just upheld. An Illinois appeals court handed down the ruling Friday, with the three-judge panel voting 2-1 to uphold Jussie’s conviction … according to new legal docs obtained by TMZ.
With the ruling, Jussie appears likely to return to a Chicago jail to complete his 150-day sentence. Remember … Jussie was initially convicted in 2022, spending 6 days in Cook County Jail before being released while trying to get his sentence overturned.
TMZ said it’s “likely” he’ll go to prison but I’m far less convinced. I’ll believe it when I see it. But at least we’re one step closer to seeing him get a slap on the wrist, which is far less than what this scumbag deserves.
