Actor Jussie Smollett has been sentenced to 150 days in jail after he was convicted in 2021

In January 2019, Smollett, who is Black and gay, said he had been a victim of a racist and homophobic attack in Chicago.

Though evidence presented in court revealed he staged the attack and then told a false story to law enforcement.

Smollett is sentenced to a total of 30 months of felony probation, in which he will be allowed to travel.

He also must pay a fine of $25,000 and more than $120,000 in retribution to the city of Chicago.

Smollett said, "I'm not suicidal, I am innocent. I did not do it, your honor," after the sentence was handed down by Judge James Linn.

The judge said the actor has shown to have a side of himself that is "profoundly selfish and narcissistic," though he acknowledged that Smollett had good qualities too.

Jussie Smollett is a famous actor in Empire, Alien Covenant. Ask me Anything, The Mighty Ducks, The Skinny and many more.
