Prosecutor Who Dropped Charges Against Jussie Smollett Thinks Actor Is Guilty

Jussie may have been cleared, but not everyone, including the prosecutor, believes the actor.

(AllHipHop News) Jussie Smollett is in the clear legally, but he has many still questioning his innocence, including the prosecutor who dropped all the charges against the actor in a stunning turn of events.

Yesterday, Jussie strutted out of court victorious, after prosecutors agreed to drop all 16 felony charges of disorderly conduct against the "Empire" actor.

The rap star admitted no guilt, but he agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond to the state and completed a whopping 16 hours of community service with Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push coalition, where he stuffed envelopes and critiqued a video.

The news drew the wrath of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago's Police Superintendent, Eddie Johnson.

Case prosecutor Joseph Magats, the First Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney, stated in an interview with CBS Chicago that he does "not believe he (Jussie) is innocent," and in fact thinks he's guilty. “Based on all facts and circumstances of the case, and also keeping in mind resources and keeping in mind that the office’s number one priority is to combat violent crime and the drivers of violence, I decided to offer this disposition in the case,” Joseph Magats said.
