Kim Foxx Officially Subpoenaed Over Handling Of Jussie Smollett Case
According to a report from PageSix.com, Kim Foxx, the prosecutor in Chicago, has been ordered by Judge Sheila O'Brien to appear at a hearing regarding the Jussie Smollett case.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the attorney was ordered with a subpoena to appear before a judge regarding the dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor who allegedly orchestrated a hate crime against himself for personal and career gains.
The report claims that the former appellate subpoenaed not only Kim, but Joseph Magats, her top deputy, and also requested Jussie Smollett appear in the court as well. It's looking like Jussie's issue with the legal system isn't over yet.
As it was previously reported, Foxx took considerable heat from the Chicago police department as well as users on social media after all charges, 16 of them, were dropped against Jussie Smollett for lying to the police repeatedly.
Jussie allegedly paid two Nigerian-American men $3,500 to attack him after he sent a hateful note to himself and it didn't get the attention he wanted. O'Brien said the managing of the case was characterized by "irregularity."
Page Six claims the judge believes Foxx lied to the public about how the case was handled, telling reporters that it was like any other case, despite being totally unlike typical incidents involving false police reports. The judge asked for Magats and Foxx to produce all of the documents related to the incident, and ensure none of them are destroyed or altered.
Moreover, Foxx has been on the receiving end of yet another investigation, except coming from an independent inspector. Two major players on her team, notably her chief spokesperson and chief ethics officers, have vacated Kim's office, suggesting Kim's situation is getting messy.
Rumor has it that Michelle Obama knows Jussie Smollett and Kim Foxx, personally, and used her influence in the system to get the controversial actor off on charges. However, this hasn't been substantiated, merely uttered on social media and in gossip tabloids.
