For gaslighting the nation and committing serious felonies, actor Jussie Smollett was sentenced to a mere 150 days in jail and 30 months of felony probation. He was ordered to pay $120k dollars in restitution and $25k in fines.
According to Just The News:
Jussie Smollett received a sentence of 150 days in jail and 30 months of probation while the judge slammed the actor as “profoundly arrogant, selfish and narcissistic” for faking a hate crime in Chicago in 2019.
The former Empire actor will also be forced to pay $120,000 in restitution and a $25,000 fine, Fox News’ Matt Finn reports.
“I did not do this! I’m not suicidal. If anything happens to me when I go in there, you must all know that,” Smollett said in court Thursday.
Smollett’s supporters, including Samuel L. Jackson, Rev. Jesse Jackson and the organization Black Lives Matter, wrote letters to Judge James Linn asking for leniency. Even Smollett’s 92-year-old grandmother got on the stand and asked for mercy, TMZ reports.
Is this justice? Will Black Lives Matter riot because they think this is TOO HARSH?
