It looks like Jussie Smollett’s attacker is back on the streets. Several outlets are reporting that Smollett is out on bail pending an appeal of his faking a hate crime conviction. He had been sent straight to jail upon sentencing, but that didn’t last. He was sentenced to 150 days in prison.

He still contests he didn’t fake it.

The AP reports:

The appeals court, in a 2-1 decision, said Smollett could be released after posting a personal recognizance bond of $150,000, meaning he doesn’t have to put down money but agrees to come to court as required. It was unclear late Wednesday how soon he may be released.
