Tina Glandian spoke with "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, a day after Chicago prosecutors abruptly dropped charges yet still insisted that Smollett lied to police about being attacked by two strangers on January 29.
The rap star admitted no guilt, but he agreed to forfeit his $10,000 bond to the state and completed a whopping 16 hours of community service with Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push coalition, where he stuffed envelopes and critiqued a video.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that if Smollett were not an actor with influence, he would have been held to a different standard.
Smollett was charged with 16 felonies after he allegedly lied to police after staging a phony racist and homophobic attack by Trump supporters in Chicago.

Special counsel Robert Mueller completes investigation
I think the public has the right to know, especially given all the time, money, and drama associated with Mueller's investigation. The prospect of no further indictments could present a massive boon to President Trump and many of those surrounding him.
Trump says public should see 'ridiculous' Mueller report
There has been increasing speculation that Mueller has almost completed his investigation. Rosenstein appointed Mueller , a former FBI director, to conduct the investigation.
Smollett also said the men doused him with a chemical and put a noose around his neck.
Cook County First Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Magats told reporters that he still believes Smollett staged the attack but prosecutors dropped the case because they needed to focus on violent crimes.
"He completely politicized this at a time when our country is ripping itself apart", McCain said. "Jussie's thing with the law has definitely benefitted in terms of everyone's talking about you, you're the lead story on everything", Wendy, who recently made headlines of her own after admitting she's been living in a sober house, said. "Mr. Smollett being in a position of power over them - him being this celebrity person who could pull strings for them and help them in their career", Schmidt said. "They were his trainers", Holmes said.
The brother that was being interviewed "stated that indeed was the bottle he filled with bleach and poured on Smollett", one of the reports say.
"There was no attempt, whatsoever, to influence the outcome of this case", she said. However, TMZ reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation said the Chicago Police were "overstating" and "went too far". "Let's get to the bottom of this", he said. Police had found that bottle on February 7 during their investigation, the reports say. After leaving the hearing - which would have happened in secrecy if not for a last-minute media tipoff by a publicist - the actor even boasted he'd been "truthful and consistent from day one" and thanked the state for "attempting to do what's right" by dropping the charges.
