Just watched the documentary titled “The disappearance of Madeleine McCann”. Before watching it, I was rather glib about the subject. I would say things like “But didn’t they say the parents did it?!”. So flippant. Now I’m so sorry.

Jussie Smollett has been in a spot of bother (Picture: Nuccio DiNuzzo/Getty Images) All charges against the actor Jussie Smollett have been dropped, and his record expunged, after an emergency hearing. [metro-zone-post-thumbnail-link] Smollett’s family have released a statement, reading: ‘Our son and brother is an innocent man whose name and character has been unjustly smeared. Jussie is a son, a brother, a partner, a champion for human rights, and a genuine soul who would never be capable of what he was falsely accused of. So what exactly were the charges brought against Empire’s Jussie Smollett, and why have they been dropped? The charges against Jussie Smollett In February of this year, Smollett, 36, was arrested by Chicago police for allegedly filing a false police report, and for disorderly conduct. On January 29, reports were made which said that Smollett had been ‘brutally attacked’ by two men in an alleged hate crime, in which, as sources told TMZ, the two men in question asked Smollett ‘Aren’t you that f****t Empire n*****?’ before beating him, ‘putting a rope around his neck and pouring bleach on him’. The two reportedly yelled: ‘This is MAGA country,’ when they walked away TMZ also states that Smollett was subsequently taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment, and where he was found to have fractured a rib. Jussie as his character Jamal Lyon on Empire (Picture: Fox) After news of the alleged attack broke, fans filled Smollett’s Instagram with supportive comments, with one commenting: ‘Wishing you a speedy recovery and sending you sooo much love!!!’ ‘Get well soon sir! So sorry to hear what happened to you. Be blessed and stay safe,’ said another. However Smollett was arrested and charged with filing a false police report in late February, and by early March, his ‘attackers’ alleged that Smollett paid them $3,500 (roughly £2,600) as a ‘favour to stage the attack‘, and he was staring down the barrel of another 15 felony counts of filing a false police report from a grand jury – bringing the total number of charges up to 16. The 15 additional charges were divided between two areas, with the first regarding his initial report to Chicago Police Department, and the other charges regarding Jussie’s second interview with police. (Picture: Chicago Police/ZUMA Wire/REX/Shutterstock) While each of the 16 charges – to which Smollett pleaded not guilty – did not come with the potential of additional time in prison, each charge did carry a maximum probation sentence of four years. That means that Smollett potentially faced a maximum of three years in prison, a $25,000 fine and 60 years probation. Chicago Police claimed that Smollett ‘orchestrated’ the attack in Chicago because he was unhappy with his Empire salary.

The actor will forfeit his $10,000 (£7,500) bond, and his record has been wiped clean. State attorney Kim Fox’s office said: ‘After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case.’ [metro-zone-post-strip] Smollett’s legal team released a statement which read: ‘Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public, causing an inappropriate rush to judgment. ‘Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.’ [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/03/14/madeleine-mccann-netflix-documentary-release-date-time-confirmed-8901118/” title=”Madeleine McCann Netflix documentary trailer, release date and time”]

MADELEINE McCann was probably snatched from her bed “to order” by a paedophile gang who spied on her room, her family’s spokesman has claimed. Clarence Mitchell said the chances that Maddie was abducted by a stranger with a “sexual motive” was an “obvious” possibility. Madeleine McCann disappeared in 2007 The ex BBC journalist has been handling Kate and Gerry McCanns’ media dealings since their three-year-old daughter vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz in May 2007. In an interview with the Telegraph he said of Maddie’s disappearance: “I asked the British authorities what they think happened and if there was any family involvement, and they assured me it was just a rare case of stranger abduction. “It’s very rare, but it can happen. A sexual motive is an obvious possibility.” He added: “A child was taken to order from that room.” [quote credit=”Clarence Mitchell”]I asked the British authorities what they think happened and if there was any family involvement, and they assured me it was just a rare case of stranger abduction[/quote] Mitchell also spoke of the criticism Kate, 51, and Gerry, 50 have faced over their parenting – and perceived role – in Maddie’s disappearance. He told the newspaper: “A lot of it is misinformed, misguided and based purely on assumptions or lack of knowledge. People deciding that the don’t like the McCanns. “People also assumed the worst.

A SEARCH helicopter on the lookout for an Edinburgh man who was last spotted ‘pacing back and forward’ and ‘singing while waving his arms in the air’ has been recalled after he was found safe. Cops were desperately searching for the man who they believed may have been in need of assistance after he was seen acting strangely at around 5.30pm yesterday evening. A police helicopter is on the lookout for the man (stock image) He was seen by police singing on the platform at Wallyford Park and Ride but he ran off before he was approached. Later that evening he was spotted walking on the A1 carriageway and a police chopper was drafted in but no-one was traced. At around 7.05am this morning cops were alerted to concerns for a man walking along the seafront at Inchview North in Prestonpans. The man in question was pacing back and forth and singing while waving his hands in the air. Again he sprinted off before cops engaged. The force was hopeful of locating this man and urged members of the public who may know him to get in touch with any information regarding his whereabouts. And they confirmed this evening that he had been found. A spokesperson for the force said: “We can confirm that a man that we were concerned for in the East Lothian area has been traced safe. “The matter was initially reported to us around 5.30pm on Monday, March 25.

MADELEINE McCann conspiracy theorists claim the missing girl was born as part of a government cloning project, the family’s spokesman has revealed. Clarence Mitchell said the “ridiculous” suggestion is among many other absurd theories put to him in over a decade. Conspiracy theorists say missing Madeleine McCann was born as part of a ‘cloning project’ And thousands of people – including psychics –  have reported seeing Maddie in a dream, he told the Telegraph. The ex BBC journalist has been handling Kate and Gerry McCanns’ media dealings since their three-year-old daughter vanished from a holiday apartment in Portugal’s Praia da Luz in May 2007. In an interview with the Telegraph, he said: “One of the most ridiculous conspiracy theories I have heard was that Madeleine was born as the result of a government cloning project.” MADDIE ‘PART OF A CLONING PROJECT’ Mitchell also spoke of the criticism Kate, 51, and Gerry, 50 have faced over their parenting – and perceived role – in Maddie’s disappearance. He told the newspaper: “A lot of it is misinformed, misguided and based purely on assumptions or lack of knowledge. People deciding that the don’t like the McCanns. “People also assumed the worst. That [the McCanns] were getting drunk, that they were having fun and that they did not care about their children.” [quote credit=”Clarence Mitchell”]People also assumed the worst.
