State attorney Kim Foxx called Jussie Smollett a & # 39; washed up celeb who lied to police & # 39; in texts that were sent just two weeks before all charges were sent against him.

In messages weeks after she reportedly recovered herself from the case Foxx wrote to prosecutor Joe Magats: & Pedophile with 4 victims counts 10. Ordinary celeb who lied to the police, 16. & # 39;

It is clear that she counts Smollett & 16's crime of lying to the police to compare the allegations against another celebrity defendant, R. Kelly.

The case against Smollett, 36, was suddenly and unexpectedly dropped by Foxx's office last month under questionable circumstances.

In messages sent two weeks before that decision, Foxx, who has since made repeated resignation calls for her handling of the case, writes: & # 39; Sooo …… I am recused, but when people accuse us of overloading things … 16 count on class 4 to become exhibition A.

She continues: & # 39; Pedophile with 4 victims 10 counts. Ordinary celeb who lied to the police, 16. & # 39;

Magats replies: & # 39; Yes. I can see where that can be seen as an exaggeration. & # 39;

Foxx adds: & # 39; Regarding a case that qualifies for deferred prosecution, I think it is an indication of something that we should generally look at. Just because we can charge something does not mean that we have to do it. & # 39; & # 39; Agreed & # 39 ;, Magats adds.

Foxx is said to have complained of the case on February 19, but the reports of March 8 seem to show that she is still concerned about the way it was handled.

Further messages show that Foxx & # 39; yes … it's not who we want to be & # 39; replies to a message from her colleague Magats that he has a & # 39; hard look & # 39; will take into account how we charge things.

Magats writes: & # 39; I get Risa and Jim. With him taking over we can look hard at how we take things into account and get into something that relates to what needs to be covered without being over the top and ultimately meaningless. & # 39;

Risa is considered prosecutor Risa Lanier, it is not known to whom Jim refers.

Two weeks later, Magats announced that all 16 charges against Smollett had been rejected.

In a statement to CBS Chicago Foxx said: & # 39; After the charge became public, I reached to Joe to discuss office policies to ensure consistency in our charging and our use of proper taxing authority.

& # 39; I have been chosen to bring about criminal justice reform and that includes intentionality, consistency and discretion. I continue to uphold these guiding principles. & # 39;

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Police Department chief inspector, Eddie Johnson, expressed their anger when her office decided to drop the case.

In the early stages of the investigation, she exchanged text messages with members of Smollett & # 39; s family and, at their request, tried to convince the Chicago PD to let the FBI take the lead.

The actor of the empire was accused of attacking himself on January 29 to try and get a show raise.

He is now facing a lawsuit after the actor refused to pay $ 130,106 in overtime worked by the police investigating the January incident that the authorities believe is a phased attack.

The star is currently on vacation with his family in Hawaii, where he seemed tense during a heated phone call, and said to a friend: "It's over, I've left".

According to police, he paid Abel and Ola Osundairo to defeat him in what he then described as a racist, homophobic attack by two Trump-containing perpetrators. He has always maintained his innocence and insisted that he be attacked.

Foxx, who withdrew from the case after communicating with a family member of Smollett during the probe, has reiterated that she welcomes an independent investigation into how she and her office dealt with the case.

And despite the criticism she has been given, Foxx has continued to ignore calls to resign and revealed that she has plans for re-election.

Smollett, who is black and gay, told the police on January 29 that two apparent supporters of President Trump beat him, put a sling around his neck and poured bleach on him while he shouted: & # 39; This is MAGA country & # 39 ;.

He told officers that the unknown chemical substance was used on him while & # 39; Empire f **** t & # 39; and & # 39; Empire n ***** & # 39; were called to him.

Researchers later said they believed Smollett Abimbola & # 39; Abel & # 39; and Olabinjo & # 39; Ola & # 39; Osundairo had perhaps paid $ 3,500 to attack him in the orchestrated attack.
