Chicago sends letter trying to recoup $130K from Jussie Smollett [View all]

Source: Chicago Tribune

The city sent a letter to Smollett through his attorneys Thursday, demanding he pay $130,106 “expended on overtime hours in the investigation of this matter.”

If Smollett does not pay, the letter states the city “may prosecute you for making a false statement to the city.”

“The City of Chicago and the Chicago Police Department take seriously those who make false statements to the police, thereby diverting resources from other investigations and undermining the criminal justice system,” the letter signed by Corporation Counsel Ed Siskel reads in part. “On January 29, 2019, you made a police report in which you falsely claimed that two men had attacked you while yelling racial and homophobic slurs.”

Law Department spokesman Bill McCaffrey said the city wasn’t committing to such a lawsuit. But he said the city has “a lengthy and successful track record” of recovering funds under a statute that makes a person liable for costs the city incurred to provide services related to the person’s violation of the law.
