Jussie Smollett Appeals to Illinois Supreme Court

TMZ, February 6, 2024

Jussie Smollett is telling the Illinois Supreme Court a deal’s a deal — specifically, the deal prosecutors made when they dismissed the first indictment for faking an attack {snip}

Smollett just filed legal docs with the highest court in the land of Lincoln, claiming after he was first indicted by a Cook County Grand Jury, the State’s Attorney offered him a deal — do community service, forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, and the case would not be prosecuted.


Smollett says the reason he was indicted a second time … the special prosecutor “gave in to public outcry.”

Jussie argues he did community service and forfeited his bond, so filing the case a second time amounts to double jeopardy.
