Last week Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Steven Graff Levine tells Yahoo that the Empire star’s case isn’t closed just yet.“I think this case is really just starting now,” Levine says. “I think this dismissal has opened up a brand new can of worms because I think people who were not interested in the case before are now very interested in the case.
This case is far, far, far from over.”The lawyer addresses questions about why Smollett forfeited his $10,000 bail, why the Chicago Police Department is angry at the charges being dropped, why the charges were dropped at all and more in the video above.
And it seems that Smollett case is far from over!
The city of Chicago is filing a civil lawsuit against Jussie Smollett after the actor refused to reimburse the city for costs associated with the investigation of his alleged hate crime hoax.
Chicago sent Smollett a letter in late March demanding that he pay $130,000 to offset costs of attack investigation, saying: “This is a reasonable and legally justifiable amount to collect to help offset the cost of the investigation.”
Smollett failed to pay the amount at the end of the one-week deadline that Chicago set in place despite being warned that he would face legal action if he refused.
“Mr. Smollett has refused to reimburse the City of Chicago for the cost of police overtime spent investigating his false police report on January 29, 2019,” Bill McCaffrey, City of Chicago Department of Law, said in a statement. “The Law Department is now drafting a civil complaint that will be filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County. Once it is filed, the Law Department will send a courtesy copy of the complaint to Mr. Smollett’s Los Angeles-based legal team.”
“The Law Department will file the suit in the near future. As part of this legal action, the Law Department will pursue the full measure of damages allowed under the ordinance,” the statement continued. “The City of Chicago and Chicago Law Department will not have any further comment at this time.”
I think that if we don’t get the criminal justice we deserve, at least publicly make him pay back the money wasted with his self delusional idiocy, and admit his guilt.
