From all the documents in the Jussie Smollett case, which were released this week, it is becoming clear why the Chicago Police Department and the mayor were so publicly upset when charges in the case were suddenly dropped.
Jussie Smollett was to admit guilt for staging a hate crime. Instead he walked free.
But Kim Foxx said in a previous interview with CBS 2, “This case was treated like the other cases that have gone through our alternative prosecution model.”
Documents revealed that on February 28 after Smollett was indicted, the state’s attorney’s office notified CPD, saying the case would be prosecuted with $10,000 in restitution, community service and admission of guilt.
But that admission of guilt never happened as charges were suddenly dropped by Kim Foxx’s office nearly a month later, and Smollett walked free, blindsiding police.
