If the jury system guilty a year in jail, $50,000 fine and 3 years probation.
No, I think you and Chicago police are kidding with the "case" you've presented against him but I guess it's easier than actual police work.
You're entitled to your view.
I disagree with it.
But it is your opinion.
Maybe it's because you're so full of hate.
Most Trump supporters here think that Smollett, if found guilty, should get a light sentence.
I'm a trump supporter, and think he should get 5 years.
IfManafort had written Crazy, Hello Walls and Bloody Mary Morning maybe he would have gotten a better deal.
Six months top, plus a big fine. His career is over...
How do you explain the two African Brothers who were video taped purchasing the materials used in the supposed crime. And who confessed to working with Smollett to stage the hoax?
It kind of looks looks a slam-dunk, but so did OJ.
Okay, I got the numbers wrong. It's less than half, not "most" of us. But It's still an important distinction.
You mean she should be given the sentence that would have been given to her victim, had she gotten away with the false charge against him. That's something to think about. But here, Smollett didn't actually try to frame anyone in particular. He just made it up for attention.
Actually he did.
He went after all white people,
But no one in particular. No one stood to be charged. Smollett didn't pick someone from a lineup. He didn't try to frame anyone or have them charged with a hate crime. It was a stunt for attention. Democrats and the left wing mainstream media have been stirring the same racial animus for decades for personal gain. But you can't justly put all of that on Smolletts back. Smollett didn't create the race baiting left wing. The race baiting left wing created Smollett.
I doubt he ever sees time behind bars(gay bars yes, jail no) and gets fined..
I;m pretty sure is it was a famous white actor, who fabricated a story about blacks, that was criminal, all over the front pages for a while.
He would be charged with a race crime.
This is what I feel also.
He deserves a stint in jail, but I'm afraid he will get out of it.
Community service, and probation probably.
And a stiff fine,
but his legal team will drain all his cash, and he has no job.
From what I understand he is still on the show but the ratings dropped..
I wish there had been one more option:
"My opinion really doesn't matter and the judge at the jury trial in Cook County, IL, will make the decision as to sentencing."
But Smollett is a racist and should get some time.
I'm real glad Cook County refused and would not hand the case over to the FBI.
He's on hold, not fired yet, of course there is a legal issue there.
But once he is convicted, he will be fired.
What wouldn't be a surprise is before conviction he tells the judge the show had him set up the situation to try and increase the spread of free advertising.
Hard to say what is going on, but they will offer him a plea deal between now and his next appearance.
He has a dream team of lawyers.
Hmm. You may have a point there. But only because the left wing mainstream media would influence it in that direction, at least in the court of public opinion. I'm not sure though that the corrupt media would hold that much sway in a real courtroom and jury. That's why court findings are often so much at odds with public expectations....a biased media.
While individual harm is confined to self. The harm to society is much much greater. Therefore he should, if found guilty and depending on the final charges face a fairly stiff penalty. If he is allowed to get away with a slap on the wrist it will only encourage more folks to pull stunts like this for personal and/or political gain.
He is not sick, he was trying to game the system. If that makes him sick then most of society is sick.
Most of society is sick.
