Jussie Smollett Indicted on 16 Felony Counts by Grand Jury
16 Felony Counts
by Grand Jury Last month, the 'Empire' actor was
charged with filing a false police report
and staging an attack against himself.
The Cook County State's Attorney's office has confirmed
that a grand jury in Chicago indicted Smollett on 16
felony counts, including two separate sets of charges.
The first set of charges pertain to what Smollett
told police when the incident first occurred.
The second set of charges are related to the
second interview the actor had with police.
Smollett faces up to four years in prison,
though some experts predict he will strike a plea deal.
