When Jussie Smollett’s charges were dropped, the failed actor ran out of town immediately knowing what he had gotten way with.
Now, it appears the case may not be over with.
And Smollett just received what could end up being the worst news of his entire life.
Things keep getting worse for the failed actor.
Once everyone discovered that he filed a false police report by creating a fake hate crime, his reputation and career were ruined.
He did manage to sneak away without any charges, but he was disgraced.
Now, a special prosecutor is investigating why the charges were mysteriously dropped, and it could put Smollett behind bars.
Fox News reports:
A high-profile former U.S. Attorney was appointed special prosecutor Friday morning to re-examine the Jussie Smollett case and why charges were abruptly dropped against him.
Dan Webb was picked to lead the second look at the notorious false report case — including whether new charges should be brought against the “Empire” actor — by Judge Michael Toomin during a hearing in a Chicago criminal court.
Toomin ruled back in June the case was rife with “unprecedented irregularities” and needed a special prosecutor to restore the public’s faith in the justice system.
Smollett, who is black and openly gay, claimed earlier this year he was the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime. But his story quickly fell apart after police determined he’d paid two brothers to stage the attack.
The investigation is taking place because of “unprecedented irregularities” in the case.
Even though Smollett had a mountain of evidence stacked against him, the city of Chicago gave him a free pass.
You don’t have to be Sherlock Holmes to see that Jussie Smollett was given preferential treatment for his status as a Left-wing celebrity.
But while he may have gotten away scot free so far, he may be in for a rude awakening.
If the special prosecutor is able to reopen the case and prove the ruling was wrong, Jussie Smollett could face new charges.
And with all the evidence that’s been discovered around the case, he would likely end up in prison.
