According to court documents, Smollett must serve those 150 days in jail and pay $120,106 in restitution to law enforcement for their resources in investigating the hoax.

Oh -- and he was also charged $25,000.

"You're just a charlatan pretending to be a victim of a hate crime," Judge James Linn told Smollett in court.

If you don't remember, back in 2019, Jussie alleged that he was attacked by two people. But in 2021, Jussie was found guilty of five out of six felony counts of disorderly conduct.
