‘Teary-Eyed’ Jussie Smollett Released From Jail on Appeals Court Order: Attorney

March 17, 2022

Just six days into his five-month sentence for faking an attack on himself, actor Jussie Smollett is a free man after an appellate court ruled he could be released from jail while appealing his case. Smollett’s lead attorney, Nenye Uche, says the actor got “teary-eyed” when he found out the news, and that his two brothers were visiting him at the time. The former “Empire” star was sentenced last week to 150 days for staging a hate crime on himself.
