Jussie Smollett is currently facing 150 days in prison, 30 months of felony probation, and more than $100,000 in fines for faking hate crime. However, according to recent reports, Jussie will be held in protective custody while serving his sentence, as requested.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Judge Linn stated that Smollett and his team asked for protection. Smollett is immediately checking PC, but it’s on the judge’s orders. The goal of protective custody is to keep an inmate safe while they serve their sentence.

Following Thursday’s sentencing, Smollett was immediately arrested. Smollett was given a medical and mental health assessment, as well as a security assessment, according to a Cook County Sheriff’s Office representative.

Smollett erupted after his sentence, which included 30 months of felony probation, $120,000 in restitution, and a $25K fine, stating that he isn’t suicidal and that if something bad happens to him while he’s in jail, he wants everyone to know he didn’t do it to himself.

Even after being found guilty, Jussie Smollett maintained his innocence and kept insisting he didn’t employ the Osundairo brothers, Abel and Ola, to stage the “attack” on a cold Chicago night. However, the City of Chicago has also filed a lawsuit against Jussie in a separate civil action for $130,000 in resources spent investigating his claims.
