A malicious prosecution lawsuit filed against the City of Chicago by actor Jussie Smollett was dismissed on Thursday, placing the accused hate hoax plotter on the line for $130,000 in costs incurred by police investigating a hoax the authorities believe he staged himself, with the assistance of two acquaintances.
Smollett had false police report criminal charges inexplicably dropped by Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx last year, much to the chagrin of the Chicago Police. Smollett has since been charged by a special prosecutor tasked with reviewing the case, but as a condition of the original charges he was to be fined $130,000 for the police investigation.
Smollett sued the city, arguing that the $10,000 bond he forfeited in return for the dropping of charges was the only fine he was legally obligated to pay for the matter, describing the fine in his lawsuit as a condition of an off-the-books “plea agreement.” However, federal judge Virginia Kendall sees the situation differently, and ruled that Smollett’s police fine of $130,000 is still outstanding.
The former Empire actor now faces the prospect of real criminal conviction for his role in orchestrating what many are calling an obvious hate hoax- paying two Nigerian brothers to play the role of bigoted Trump supporters who racially abused him and attacked him with bleach- and paying a whopping fine to the Chicago police for the significant use of resources investigating what authorities believe was a concocted hoax.
It had initially looked as if Smollett would evade any accountability for his actions when Kim Foxx dropped the charges without explanation, considering prosecutors have gone on record describing the criminal case against the left-wing celebrity as a slam dunk. But it appears as if he won’t be so lucky after all.
HOAX: Police Report Alleges Texas A&M Student Faked Racist Letters on Car Dashboard
The suspected hoaxster stopped cooperating with police after being confronted with video evidence.
Texas A&M University police are describing an incident in which a black student claimed racist and anti-Black Lives Matter messages were left on his car windshield as a hate hoax, after investigating Isaih Martin’s claims that he was targeted with the messages.
Martin had claimed that three pieces of paper stating “All Lives Matter,” “You Don’t Belong Here,” and a racial slur were placed on his car windshield when his vehicle was placed in the parking lot of an on-campus apartments. His claims elicited an outpouring of sympathy from the university community, with Texas A&M’s official Twitter even consoling the supposed victim without waiting for any verification of his dubious claims.
However, shortly after police began investigating the incident, Martin’s claim began to unravel. The Texas A&M University police obtained footage from a pool camera revealing that while a few individuals walked within several yards of his car, none of them stopped at the vehicle long enough to place the three piece of paper under the windshield wipers. Instead, Martin was the only individual who interacted with the vehicle long enough to place the notes.
“Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors. Martin is seen toward the front of his vehicle. A brief white speck is seen from about mid-torso of Martin moving toward his vehicle. Another white speck is seen near his chest area. Martin is then seen stepping back and onto the sidewalk in front of his vehicle, most likely taking photos and videos. He then approaches his vehicle again on the passenger side and remains there for a few moments. He is then seen walking around the front of his vehicle. Martin then enters the driver`s door and drives away a few moments later. The total time spent at his vehicle is 1 minute, 15 seconds.”
An investigating officer accused Martin of placing the notes on his windshield himself, confronting him with video evidence revealing that he was the only person close enough to his vehicle to place them there. Martin stopped cooperating with police on the investigation shortly after an officer confronted him on the video footage. The university senior won’t be charged because he didn’t file a formal police report on the matter.
Martin made his Twitter account private in the hours after the police report became public knowledge.
