Illinois: A Cook County judge accused Kim Foxx’s office of a double standard in pursuing charges in a false report case after dropping the charges against Jussie Smollett.

A Cook County judge accused Kim Foxx’s office of a double standard for pursuing charges in a false report case after dropping the charges against Jussie Smollett.

Judge Marc Martin called the prosecutors out during an April, 11 hearing for pursuing charges against Candace Clark.

According to a transcript obtained by FOX 32, Judge Martin stated, “I’d like to know why Ms. Clark is being treated differently than Jussie Smollett. It’s a disorderly conduct case. A lot less egregious than Mr. Smollett’s case. I have a problem with it.”

Clark, 21, was accused of giving an acquaintance access to her bank account and then reported that money stolen, which she denies. Prosecutors are looking for her to make full restitution and serve deferred prosecution, something Smollett was not forced to do.

“Ms. Clark is not a movie star, she doesn’t have a high-priced lawyer,” Judge Martin continued. “And this smells big time. Your office created this mess. There’s no publicity on this case. Press gets ahold of this; it’ll be the newspaper.”
