CHICAGO (WLS) — Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx sat down with ABC7’s Craig Wall for her first sit-down interview since special prosecutor Dan Webb re-filed charges against actor Jussie Smollett.
“I understand the attention that this has gotten,” Foxx said. “Political opponents have spent millions of dollars at the forefront of people’s mind.”
A year ago Foxx’s office indicted and then dropped charges against the actor. Now he’s been charged again with lying about a staged hate crime.
“The exercise of second-guessing months later of how we handled one case, I’ll leave it to others to do,” she said.
