Jussie Smollett's Prosecutor Says He Believes Jussie Lied To Police

CNN reports the prosecutor who dropped the charges against Jussie Smollett said he still believes the actor lied to the police about the racist and homophobic attack he allegedly staged in Chicago in January.

In a surprise hearing Tuesday, Joe Magats, the first assistant state's attorney in Cook County, announced he decided to drop charges against Smollett.

The stunning reversal 18 days after a grand jury indicted the "Empire" actor on felony disorderly conduct angered the Chicago mayor and police department.

The decision to drop the charges does not mean the actor was innocent or any new evidence was presented.
