Jussie Smollet turned himself into police on Thursday morning.
When he turned himself for the crime he allegedly staged, Jussie Smollett told the police he has an untreated drug problem.
People are now claiming he might use this in court for a reduced sentencing.
Jussie told police that he’s had a drug problem for a while now.
Prosecutors said Abimbola “Abel” Osundairo, one of the brothers who helped Smollett allegedly stage the attack in January, is one of his drug dealers, and has been dealing to him since the spring of 2018.
It’s reported that Jussie’s drug problem could now be a mitigating factor in his sentencing.
Black twitter and other social media have been making incessant memes about Jussie Smollett,
