Actor Jussie Smollett has learned his fate after being convicted of staging a hate crime hoax back in December.
The former â€œEmpireâ€ actor was sentenced to 150 days behind bars, 30 months felony probation a $25,000 fine and restitution to the city of Chicago by Judge James Linn on Thursday after he was convicted last year of lying to Chicago police about being the victim of a hate crime.
Smollett shouted after the verdict â€œI am not sucidial,â€ as he continued to proclaim his innocence. â€œI DID NOT DO THIS. Iâ€™m not suicidal. If anything happens to me when I go in there, you must all know that. Jail time, I am not suicidal,â€ he said.
His request for a new trial was denied:
