On the upside, juicy might get the opportunity to experience real hate crime once he's behind bars.

False report of a crime is not something that would cause him or any of us to go to prison for.

False report of a felony in Michigan is a crime punishable by up to four years, but those convicted of this will always get a probationary sentence unless they're a multiple offender. So unless Jusse has felony covictions he's not going to see day one inside a cell.

These are Federal charges, since Foxx dropped the state charges.

His defense attorney just told the jury he was a real victim of a real crime. They must not think anyone was alive the past almost 2 years

Well, Michael Jackson sang and danced on the Super Bowl Halftime Show
so a kid abuser has already been there.
But yes, execution would be a first.
MJ wasn't the only pedo to be held in such high regard.
It took 2 years for this to happen....is that typical?
yes, with the feds, 2 years actually pretty quick. which says something about their confidence in the case they have.

i thought this was the jury selection process?

i do endorse the doubling down though.

I think he should stick to his guns and call the judge, jury and whole system racist. After all, it was The System that created the world we’re living in. The System allows these racists to flourish with impunity while gay black men can’t get more money on their tv show.
There’s no way this can be a fair trial.

Plus when all else fails, throw the race card. It always wins in the court of public opinion...the court of most consequence

For some reason that ended around 4 and they started right away. Kind of odd
