It’s official, the Defense Attorney for the stars has joined Jussie Smollett’s legal team in Chicago.
Famed Los Angeles based defense attorney Mark Geragos has joined Smollett’s legal team. Geragos has defended the likes of Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, Winona Ryder, Scott Peterson, among others.
CBS Chicago’s Charlie De Mar broke the store about an hour ago on Wednesday afternoon.
His bio from his website reads as follows.
Mark Geragos has represented some of the most prominent figures in the world. His client list has included former Congressman Gary Condit, former first brother Roger Clinton, Academy Award-nominated actress Winona Ryder, pop star Michael Jackson, Nicole Ritchie, singer Chris Brown, hip hop stars Nathaniel “Nate Dogg” Hale and Sean “Diddy” Combs (aka Puff Daddy), international arms dealer Sarkis Soghanalian, and the Sarkisyan family, whose seventeen-year-old daughter died when Cigna Corporation refused to authorize a liver transplant. For the last several years, Geragos has represented Barry Bonds’ personal trainer, Greg Anderson, in his matter relating to the Federal Investigation into steroid use in Professional Sports.
This is as big of a heavy hitter as it gets America, this is officially game on, and charges are now looming towards Jussie Smollett. Local Chicago Media have said that an indictment could be coming against Smollett in a matter of hours per Fox 32 Rafer Weigel.
