Default Jussie Smollett case: Chicago prosecutors drop all charges against 'Empire' actor

Has anybody been keeping up with this dude?

Usually I don't follow celebrity crap (except GoT) but the sudden reversal got my attention.
But come to find out instead of some error by the state, this is just where they're calling it even after the police invaded his privacy to get medical records.

Yet-get this-YET Smollet is giving speeches like he is completely exonerated!

We've done this one.

What that and numerous articles fail to mention is that Smollett left a $100K appearance bond on the table even though there is no mention of any failure to appear.

Call it pre paid fine or outright bribe. Your choice.

It was a $10,000 bond or $625 per count of the indictment.

So youíre saying declining to press charges doesnít mean that the person in question didnít commit the act? Interesting....

Yes it is interesting. However, in this case the investigative group actually presented evidence to support their conclusion that crimes had been committed that warranted 16 felony charges.

Smollett was indicted by a grand jury. The prosecutor suddenly dropped charges after they were filed. It's completely different from a prosecutor declining to file charges due to lack of evidence.

If he is innocent why is his bail forfeited?

What other case are you speaking of?
