Actor and convicted hate crime fraudster Juicy Smollett is being held in a mental ward, his brother claims.
“So Juicy is currently in a psychiatric ward at Cook County Jail. It is a matter of great concern that a note was attached to his papers today and placed in front of his jail cell that he was at risk of self-harm, “his brother, Jockey Smollett, reported in the Daily Mail.
He asked supporters to create posts with the hashtag #FreeJussie.
“I want to make it clear to people that he is not at risk of self-harm in any way, shape or form,” he said.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Office said the actor was not being held in solitary confinement but did not deny that he was in a mental ward.
“The use of solitary confinement in the Cook County Jail was abolished in 2016, and any claim that he was imprisoned in this way is false,” the office said.
“Mr Smollett is being held in his own cell, which is monitored by security cameras in the cell and monitored by an officer wearing a worn-out camera, who is at the entrance to the cell to make sure Mr Smollett is always under direct surveillance.”
“Like all detainees, Mr Smollett is entitled to ample time in the general area outside his home where he is being held, where he is able to use the telephone, watch television and communicate with staff. While outside the cell, other detainees will not be present in the general area, ”it said.
“These protocols are routinely used for persons in protective custody who may be at risk of harm due to the nature of their charge, their occupation or their significant condition. The safety and security of all detainees, including Mr Smollett, is a top priority for the sheriff’s office, “it said.
It comes after the former “Empire” star was sentenced to 150 days in prison, fined 25 25,000, 30 months probation and ordered to return to the city of Chicago.
After his conviction, the convicted hate crime fraudster repeatedly declared that he was not a suicide, which has caused concern for some and now requires a psychological assessment.
After the verdict, Smollett shouted, “I’m not suicidal,” as he continued to plead not guilty. “I did not do it. I am not suicidal. If anything happens to me when I go there, you must know. While in prison, I did not commit suicide, “he said.

Leaving the court, he kept shouting, “I am not a suicide bomber and I am innocent. I could have said much earlier that I was guilty. “
Smollett, who is black and gay, told Chicago police that on a cold January night in 2019, two strangers attacked him, called him racist and gay, bleached him and put a noose around his neck.
Chicago police investigated the case as a potential hate crime but soon determined that the actor had organized the incident. They say he paid to stage the event to promote the two brothers, known from the Fox drama “Empire”.
The brothers, Abimbola and Olabinjo Osundairo, were among the seven prosecution witnesses in the trial. They testified that Smollett instructed them and paid them on stage to attack in an attempt to gain sympathetic media coverage.
They say they punched him, bleached him, strangled him and used racist and gay language – as he told them.
Smollett testified in his own defense and said he only paid the brothers for training advice and nutrition tips. He doubted their true motivation and said he had sex with one of the brothers, which the brother denied.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Office said, “According to prison protocol, Mr. Smollett will be tested for COVID-19 after eating and will be vaccinated if he has not been vaccinated against the virus before, or if he has already been vaccinated, he will be given a booster shot.” “Currently, of the more than 6,000 people ordered in custody in custody, only 12 are positive for Covid-19 – all of whom were identified as positive during the adoption process.”
The sheriff’s office said Smollett would “undergo a comprehensive medical, mental health and safety assessment and be placed in appropriate accommodation.”
