CHICAGO — A judge has declined a request to release in full the special prosecutor’s report on State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of the Jussie Smollett case.
Attorney Dan Webb made the argument that releasing the full report, that includes evidence and grand jury testimony, is in the best interest of restoring public confidence in the criminal justice system. However, the judge raised concerns about preserving the secrecy of grand jury proceedings.
Smollett is accused of staging a racist and homophobic attack on himself in Chicago last year. He was re-indicted in February after Foxx dropped charges against him.
A summary of the report was released last week.
