Report: Chicago Police Were Under Impression Smollett Would Admit Guilt

Almost 500 hundred pages of previously sealed documents related to Jussie Smollett's hate crime hoax case were released on Thursday. The "Empire" actor was accused of reporting a fake hate crime in January. He told Chicago police he had been attacked by two President Trump supporting racists and homophobes in the middle of the night. Come to find out his two "attackers" were brothers from Nigeria who Smollett had paid to attack him, they told police. One of the brothers even knew the actor personally, having worked as an extra on "Empire."

The evidence pointed to Smollett's guilt, but as the case was heating up, prosecutors suddenly dropped all charges against the actor and his record was "wiped clean." 

Smollett was defiant as he walked out of court, maintaining his innocence and how he'd been taught never to lie.

The newly released documents tell us that police were especially upset by the attorney's office because they were under the impression that the actor was about to admit his guilt. They were then blindsided by state attorney Kim Foxx.

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.

The documents also revealed that Smollett had previously texted with the Osundairo brothers about buying drugs, before reportedly recruiting them for his hate crime hoax.

Livid Chicago police plan to investigate Foxx's actions.
