Mystery Solved: Smollett is NOT a first offender

ThisIsInsider.com: A...2007...California misdemeanor complaint against Jussie Smollett shows the actor was accused of identifying himself as his...brother...Jake Smollett...when a Los Angeles police officer pulled him over on suspicion of driving under the influence. (Jussie) also signed (Jake's) name on the promise to appear in court...

Court records show (that) he pleaded no contest...to driving under the influence...driving without a valid license...(and) the reduced charge of giving false information...The records show he later completed an alcohol education and treatment program and completed the terms of his sentence in May 2008.

So he isn't a stranger to being arrested, taking a plea deal, OR being accused of lying to the police? Surely State Attorney Kim Foxx had that information. Well, now we have the missing piece of the puzzle: while Foxx should have dismissed, rather than dropped, the charges and returned Jussie's bond money if she thought the cops had screwed up that badly, it now makes sense why Jussie "voluntarily agreed" to do some community service and forfeit his bond.

But as I said upthread, when he did that, he forfeited his presumption of innocence, too -- and now he can also wave buh-bye to his moral high ground. Game over, Jussie: coffin lid, meet nails -- check, please!
