Following Jussie Smollett's real-life prison sentencing last week after being found guilty of staging a 2019 hate crime hoax, his former TV mom Taraji P. Henson decided to defend the disgraced actor by calling for his release and using the sad case of Emmett Till as an example for her reasoning.

Sentencing has finally been revealed for Jussie Smollett's guilty verdict in his infamous hate crime hoax case: 150 days in jail, 30 months of probation and $120,000 in restitution for the overtime spent investigating the case by Chicago police officers.

The Ahmaud Arbery murder trial has officially concluded today with Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. each being found guilty for their involvement in the crime.
