you can’t tell him he isn’t innocent.
he doesn’t have olivia pope behind him…
…but he does have mark geragos on his side,
who happens to be chris brown’s lawyer.
i like to think of mark as a “voodoo priest”.
whatever magic he does keeps chris out of jail.
i’m sure it will be the same for jussie.
today was just a court hearing.
jussie didn’t have to show up,
but he did.
he apparently doesn’t want to be an observer.
according to “apnews”:
Attorney Tina Glandian made the comments during a brief hearing Tuesday in Cook County criminal court during which both sides agreed that cameras would be allowed at the next hearing in the case, which is scheduled for Thursday. During that hearing, the case will be assigned to a trial judge who will then likely ask Smollett to enter a plea.
During the hearing, which was held after local news organizations requested that cameras be allowed in the courtroom, Judge LeRoy Martin, Jr. said that the new judge will decide whether or not to allow cameras in the courtroom during subsequent hearings and the trial.
After the hearing, Glandian told reporters that evidence has been presented against Smollett that is “demonstrably false.”
“We welcome cameras in the courtroom so that the public and the media can see the actual evidence and what we believe is the lack of evidence against Mr. Smollett and we look forward to complete transparency and the truth coming out,” she said.
i’m interested in seeing how this goes.
his appears to be very confident.
someone maintaining their innocence must be telling the truth…
