Jussie Smollett thank his fans and family members and friends who have stayed with him throughout his trials, after all the 16-count charges levelled against him for his hoax homophobic and racial attack were surprisingly dropped.

Jussie Smollett who was a few hours ago freed of all charges, but will serve community service, was facing the possibility of going to jail for some reasonable amount of time if found guilty, but fortunately for him, he got out a free man with all charges dropped.
Jussie Smollett thank his fans while maintaining his innocence, saying

“First of all, I want to thank my family, my friends, the incredible people of Chicago, and all over the country and the world who have prayed for me, who have supported me, showed me so much love,” Smollett said to reporters after the hearing.

He continued by saying:
“I have been truthful and consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother’s son if I was capable of one drop of what I have been accused of.”

Smollett described the ordeal as an “incredibly difficult time; honestly, one of the worst of my entire life.”

After the charges were dropped, Smollett’s attorneys released a statement saying, “Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment.”

The Office of Cook County State’s Attorney released a statement saying, “After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case.”
