As we reported, an Illinois appeals court turned thumbs down on his appeal Friday by a 2-1 vote. Jussie's lawyers say they will try to take it up with the Illinois Supreme Court, although there's no guarantee that the Court will hear the case.

If things stand the way they are, Jussie will have to complete his 150-day sentence for faking a hate crime on the streets of Chicago back in 2019. He served 6 days before being released pending the disposition of his appeal.
If the Illinois Supreme Court takes the case, even if it upholds the conviction Jussie wouldn't begin serving the remainder of his sentence for at least a year. If the Court doesn't take the case, Jussie could be back in jail in January.
