Jussie Smollett pleads not guilty

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty in a Chicago court on Thursday to new charges that he falsely reported to police that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic assault on a city street.

Wearing a navy suit and dress coat, Smollett, 36, appeared serious and quiet standing next to his attorneys as Cook County Circuit Court Judge Steven Watkins was assigned to his case.

"Yes, sir," Smollett said in a soft voice as the judge instructed him that he would next return to court on April 12.

Some of his relatives sat in the court's overflow gallery near a handful of fans, some wearing "Empire" shirts.
