Actor Jussie Smollett left jail and was blocked from the crush of media and cameras by a large bodyguard, whose shoulders he held onto.
The team also issued a statement Thursday night criticizing the city’s handling of the case and saying that Smollett maintains his innocence.
“Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system,” Smollett’s legal team said in the statement. “The presumption of innocence, a bedrock in the search for justice, was trampled upon at the expense of Mr. Smollett and notably, on the eve of a Mayoral election. Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.”
Risa Lanier, chief of the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office’s Criminal Prosecutions Bureau, read the bond proffer in full after court, describing details of the crime for the public for the first time.
“He wanted Ola to place a rope around his neck, pour gasoline on him and yell ‘This is MAGA country,'” she said.
“Smollett directed the brothers’ attention toward a surveillance camera on the corner which he believed would capture the incident,” Lanier read from the proffer.
Police said the facial injuries he sustained were likely self-inflicted.

What’s Next For Actor Jussie Smollett?
At the Jussie Smollett police press conference Thursday morning, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the actor initially faked a letter using racist and homophobic language. When that didn’t get attention, Johnson said, Smollett paid two brothers $3,500 via personal check to stage the attack. Why? Because he was “dissatisfied with his salary.”
“Why would anyone, especially an African American man, use the symbolism of a noose to make false accusations?” Johnson wondered.
Johnson said detectives had questions about Smollett’s story from the beginning. With anyone who reports a hate crime is treated as a victim until the investigation leads elsewhere.
“My concern is that hate crimes will now publicly be met with a level of skepticism that previously didn’t happen,” Johnson said.
“Absolutely justice would be an apology to this city that he smeared, um, admitting what he did, and then be man enough to offer what he should offer up in terms of all the resources that were put in use,” Johnson added.
If actor Jussie Smollett is guilty of the felony charge, he could face up to three years in prison. He could also face substantial fines.
20th Century Fox and Fox Entertainment released a statement, saying, “We understand the seriousness of this matter and we respect the legal process. We are evaluating the situation and we are considering our options.”
