It's funny how the start of this trial made international news... but now that witnesses are testifying that they were cooking crack cocaine at the Hudson home...The media goes HUSH HUSH HUSH!!! We can't report that about a black actress!!! Oh no!!!
Reginald Jones used to perform odd jobs for the Hudson family at their Englewood neighborhood home, fixing cars, running errands, even walking the family dog, named Dreamgirl after the musical that won Jennifer Hudson an Oscar.
But under questioning Tuesday by attorneys for William Balfour, the 55-year-old handyman and former Hudson neighbor admitted he used much of the money he earned to buy cocaine from the singer's brother and feed a daily habit.
Jones also told jurors he would occasionally help with the drug sales, manning the front door to greet customers seeking $10 bags of crack from Jason Hudson, who had been shot in the leg in a home invasion in Michigan a few years earlier and couldn't get around well. He testified he once helped cook powder cocaine into about 21/2 ounces of crack in the Hudson family's kitchen.
