Jussie Smollett: Chicago PD Begins Internal Investigation After Leaked Information

Jussie Smollett: Chicago PD Begins Internal Investigation After Leaked Information

The new development comes just hours after news broke that dozens of hospital workers in Chicago were reportedly fired for improperly handling Smollett's medical records. The influx of information that leaked to the media relating to Jussie Smollett's case has prompted officials to look into where their "vulnerabilities" lie.

Smollett had gotten into hot water back on January 29, when he'd been rushed to Northwestern Hospital for treatment of wounds.

One of the unnamed nurses who was sacked, claims to CBS Chicago that she never herself even accessed Smollett's chart.

In the aftermath of the alleged Jussie Smollett attack, both fans and colleagues of the actor have had to choose sides in the polarizing fallout.

She said she wasn't asked any questions and never had a chance to offer an explanation.

According to one nurse who was sacked following the incident, she never accessed Smollett's records, but merely scrolled past them as she was searching for another patient. She added that other employees might have been mistakenly fired for the same reason.

Smollett, who pleaded not guilty, faces up to three years in prison if convicted. In addition to representing Smollett, Geragos is also now working for Colin Kaepernick.

More importantly, it put them 2-0 up in the season series over their local rivals, which means they hold the tiebreaker. The Phoenix Suns last night defeated the first-placed team of the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks, 114:105.

While the odds are seemingly stacked against Smollett, Latifah isn't the only star who has rallied their support for the actor.

The day Smollett was at the hospital, his arrival and the alleged attack were all over the news, the worker said. She is now appealing the decision.

The publication went on to state that unnamed sourced have confirmed that several more Northwestern employees have also been fired for the same offense.

The hospital is refusing the comment on situation, citing confidentiality rules.

Though it is also reported that Smollett was clearly treated at Northwestern Hospital, King additionally pointed out that HIPAA would not even let him acknowledge whether any patient, Smollett or not, was treated at the hospital.

This story is developing and will be continuously updated.
