Published: Friday 8th Mar 2019 by Rashad

‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett is in deeper trouble than previously imagined!

Originally indicted on one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office on Feb. 20. (as we reported here), the 36-year-old has now seen that count upped to 16!

Details inside:

A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, according to court records. 

The Cook county State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed the indictment, which they said was returned by a grand jury on Thursday

The grand jury returned two separate set of charges.

The first set are related to what Smollett told officers about the alleged attack, including that the attackers called him racial and homophobic slurs, struck him with his their hands, put a noose around his neck, and poured some sort of chemical substance on him. 

The second set of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police about the alleged attack later that day. 

The new set of charges carry a possible sentence of probation to four years each. Smollett already pleaded not guilty to the first disorderly conduct charge after he was taken into custody and posted $100,000 bond to be freed. [source]

      Agreed. There’s more to this. He need to start naming names.

    I damn sure wish the criminal justice system was this passionate about serving justice when black people get murdered by one of their own on camera.

      Yo if this ain’t the truth bruh.. They’ll prosecute anyone to full extent except their own

        When it’s one of theirs, they drag their feet through the process. And jump at the opportunity to throw black people away. All of a sudden the system runs smoothly again. But last year when Becky and Sally were calling the police on black people for having barbecues and walking into their own apartments, the police couldn’t do anything about it. 🙄 They didn’t care about black people being falsely accused of kidnapping their own kids and breaking into their own homes. White women have been lying on black people for centuries now. They still get believed. But Jussie, one person, could potentionally invalidate all hate crime reports from people of color? There is no excuse for a country with this many resources to be this trifling.

      But he put himself in this mess. He is not a victim.

    • Whoops 🤷🏽‍♀️🤭💅🏾 March 8, 2019

      Exactly. Cops get paid leave and a slap on the wrist for shooting somebody in the back five times, but Jussie lied ALLEGEDLY and is being treated like a terrorist. What kind of ‘murican clownery…. 🙄. For those of you who don’t know what institutionalized racism looks like, pay attention.
