Disgraced Hollywood actor and convicted felon Jussie Smollett has been moved out of the psych ward at the notorious sh*t hole Cook County Jail. Smollett has been whining about his treatment and filed an emergency motion to get his release.
The judge will decide on that today and do not be surprised if the furious judge makes Jussie serve his entire 150-day sentence and take away time off for good behavior.
Jocqui Smollett, Jussie’s brother, said on Instagram: “So I just got to see him. Thank you so much for the support, all the hashtag #FreeJussie, it’s working. He’s now been moved to a new jail cell out of the psych ward that has a bed.”
“Before he was sleeping on a restrained bed and now he’s been moved to a jail cell that actually has a bed, so thank you so much. That’s really because of all the #FreeJussie that’s been going on. It’s all the pressure we’re applying on Cook County and Cook County Jail.”
“Unfortunately, Cook County doesn’t really move until they get bad publicity and so we have to just keep applying pressure, y’all. So keep reposting with #FreeJussie. Keep continuing to call Cook County Jail checking in on him and keep saying that you believe he should be free.”
The Cook County Sheriff’s office said:
“Smollett was never restrained to a bed or anything else in the cell.
“These protocols are routinely used for individuals ordered into protective custody who may potentially be at risk of harm due to the nature of their charges, their profession, or their noteworthy status.
“The safety and security of all detained individuals, including Mr. Smollett, is the Sheriff’s Office’s highest priority.
“Smollett is in an area frequently utilized for individuals requiring a high level of supervision and care for mental health needs but the unit is also sometimes used solely for security reasons due to the enhanced monitoring that can occur in this setting.
“It would be inaccurate and irresponsible to make any assumption about his mental or medical condition based on where he is currently housed,” the office said.
