Jussie Smollett perp walk.
Actor and hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett posted bond Thursday afternoon after he turned himself in on Thursday morning.
Thursday afternoon, a judge set a $100,000 bond for Jussie Smollett just hours after the ‘Empire’ actor was arrested for filing a false police report.
Smollett’s lawyer asked the Cook County Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. to release Jussie on his own recognizance, but the judge said that would be inappropriate, reported KTIV.
Smollett must post only $10,000 and the judge said if noose is true, it ‘conjures up greatest evil in this country.’
