The appeals court ruling came after a Cook County judge sentenced Smollett last week to immediately begin serving 150 days.

The appeals court, in a 2-1 decision, said Smollett could be released after posting a personal recognizance bond of $150,000

Smollett's attorneys had argued that he would have completed the sentence by the time the appeal process was completed
