According to the original report published by the New York Post,

” Jussie Smollett was convicted Thursday of staging a hate crime nearly three years after he claimed two Trump-loving bigots beat him up, tied a noose around his neck and doused him in bleach in a misbegotten bid to raise his public profile.

Twelve jurors in Chicago criminal court found the disgraced actor guilty of five of six counts of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report following testimony from 13 witnesses and more than nine hours of deliberation.

As the jurors read out the verdict, Smollett, 39, stood huddled with his attorneys and kept his eyes trained on the panellists, remaining stoic as a phalanx of family members, who watched the eight-day trial from the front row of the gallery, sat frozen.”

Smollett was found guilty on counts 1-5 and not guilty on count 6:

“Count 1 accused him of telling responding Chicago Police Officer Muhammed Baig at around 2:45 a.m., some 45 minutes after the purported attack, that he was the victim of a hate crime. He said two attackers put a rope around his neck.

Count 2 refers to Smollett telling the same officer he was a victim of a battery, describing attackers beating and pouring bleach on him.

Counts 3 and 4 are when Smollett made the same claims but to a different officer, Kimberly Murray, later that morning, at just before 6 a.m.

Count 5 accuses Smollett of again telling Murray at around 7:15 p.m. that he was the victim of a battery.

Count 6 refers to Smollett reporting on Feb. 14, 2019, to detective Robert Graves that he’d been a victim of an aggravated battery.”

What does this verdict represent in matters of politics? Are you seeing the bigger picture?

Here are some of the comments from people online.

As an addition, many legal experts aren’t convinced that the actor will pass a single day in jail.
