Jussie Smollett was spotted strutting into a Cook County Courthouse on Tuesday for a hearing he did not have to attend. The actor has been laying low since he was arrested for filing a false police report, but decided to attend because he intends to be an active participant in his defense.
The hearing was for Jussie’s attorney, Mark Geragos to file paperwork to rep the actor in Illinois and determine if cameras will be allowed in the court room for the case.
The judge ruled cameras are a go for the trial.
The defense said they welcome the cameras so the “public and the media can see the actual evidence and what we believe is the lack of evidence against Mr. Smollett.”
