‘We all thought we were doing a Jussie support’

One of the jurors of Jussie Smollett’s trial finally decided to speak up.

Smollett, an actor and musician best known for his work in the hit TV series “Empire,” has sentenced Thursday, five of six counts of disorderly conduct, a Level 4 felony, for staging a criminal hoax against himself and then lying to police about it.

According to a juror who spoke with Chicago Sun-Times, jurors gave Smollett some respite by acquitting him of the sixth count.

“We all thought we were doing Jussie a favor,” said the juror, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

According to the Sun-Times, there seems to have been some confusion about the reason for the last charge and why it was “charged differently” than all the others.

From the jury’s point of view, if the final charge was the same, “I think we could have convicted him” of all six counts.

While the first five counts relate to statements Smollett made to police on January 29, 2019, shortly after the “assault”, the sixth statement was made a few weeks later, on February 14, 2019, according to WMAQ-TV.

At a press conference after the ruling, the special prosecutor Dan Webb suggested that separate dates could play a part in the jury’s decision to acquit that count.

However, Webb was pleased with the jury’s decision, calling it “a resounding message from the jury that Mr Smollett did exactly what we said he did”.

Do you think the jury should convict Smollett of all six counts?

This is not because of any prejudice against Smollett, However.

The unnamed juror who spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times made that clear – every juror entered the trial with an open mind.

Some of the six men and six women on the jury were skeptical as they entered the deliberation and wanted to make sure they had gone through all the evidence before coming to a decision, jurors said. .

“I just hope that [Smollett and his attorneys] knowing we went there with an open mind,” the jury said.

“I have listened to both sides. We want to make sure that those who were skeptical don’t feel the pressure.”

What really drove the final nail into Smollett’s coffin was apparently his own testimony.

The unnamed juror said there were too many areas where Smollett’s testimony lacked credibility, according to the Sun-Times.

After weighing all the evidence, the jury found out what the rest of us have known for months:
