Jussie Smollett must now spent 150 days in Cook County Jail.
On Thursday, he was sentenced for staging a 2019 hate crime.
The sheriff’s office said that he is not being held in solitary confinement, despite rumors.
They said that the jail abolished the practice in 2016.
Instead, Smollett is being housed in his own cell with constant security surveillance.
The officers around the entrance to his cell also all have body cameras.
Smollett is allowed time out of his cell to use the telephone, watch TV, and interact with staff.
Other detainees are not allowed to be in the common areas when Smollett is present.
The sheriff’s office called his safety and security their “highest priority.”
