Jussie Smollett says he is sorry for everything while maintaining his innocence.
According to EW, after posting bail, Jussie Smollett returned to the set of Empire on Thursday and apologized to the cast and crew, while still vehemently insisting that he would never do what he got indicted for.
This echoes the latest statement put out by the Smollett’s legal team, which reads: “Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system. The presumption of innocence, a bedrock in the search for justice, was trampled upon at the expense of Mr. Smollett and notably, on the eve of a mayoral election. Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.”
