“I’d like to know why Ms. Clark is being treated differently than Jussie Smollett,” asked Cook County Judge Marc Martin. “It’s a disorderly conduct case [false] reporting — a lot less egregious than Mr. Smollett’s case. I have a problem with it. Why is she being treated differently?”
And that is exactly the issue: Why is ANYONE being charged with any similar crimes…..and the open question: How long before the prosecutors CAN charge anyone with similar crimes?
It’s not like Mr. Smollett was charged and tried for his crime but got a light sentence….the charges were DROPPED…so why is the County of Cook charging anyone?
