JUSSIE SMOLLETT JUROR SAYS PANEL DIDN'T BUY ACTOR'S HATE CRIME CLAIM: A juror in the Jussie Smollett trial has explained several reasons why the jury felt there was no way they could acquit the actor because they didn't believe his hate crime claim. According to The Chicago Sun Times, the unidentified juror said that the panel knew the actor was lying when he testified at his disorderly conduct trial and found two brothers who claimed the actor paid them to stage a hate crime more credible. She said the jury even felt they were doing the actor a favor by finding him guilty on only five of the six counts of felony disorderly conduct he was facing. The juror said, “It wasn’t an easy decision. You’ve got the mother sitting there. You feel bad. We didn’t know what the penalty would be. Are we sending this guy to jail?” The jury deliberated for nine hours before reaching a verdict but not because some believed he was innocent — they just wanted to be diligent in the deliberations. The juror said, “It was not evenly split, but there were some doubters." The juror added, “I just hope that [Smollett and his legal team] know that we went in there with an open mind. I listened to both sides. We wanted to make sure that those who had doubts didn’t feel pressured.”
