Special prosecutor Dan Webb, who convicted Jussie Smollett for lying about a hate crime hoax, responded to Smollett's appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court, stating that Smollett's claim of having an agreement with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office is "imaginary." Webb argues that the alleged agreement did not protect Smollett from future charges.

Webb also rejects Smollett's double jeopardy claim, emphasizing that it doesn't apply in this case since the initial charges were dropped before a trial. Webb contends that Smollett's case does not merit a review by the Illinois Supreme Court. Webb hopes the court will deny Smollett's appeal, allowing him to serve the remaining portion of his 150-day sentence.
