This is a story that just keeps on giving….
But did he think Chicago authorities was gonna let him slide?!
As you may remember back in January of 2019 Empire’s former star Jussie Smollett contacted Chicago Police claiming he was the victim of a violent hate crime that included him being beaten, a noose put around his neck, and being doused with some kind of chemical. The saga has been ongoing ever since then with the police thinking the hate crime never actually happened, but you know how it goes, one is innocent until proven guilty.
And Smollett has always maintained his innocence and seems to be moving on with his life.
According to ABC News, Tuesday afternoon, Jussie was indicted by a special prosecutor for falsely reporting a hate crime.
A source close to Smollett told ABC news says Smollett was indicted by special prosecutor Dan Webb, who was chosen by a Cook County judge to continue the investigation into his false allegations after the Cook County State’s Attorney Office dropped all charges against the actor.
And we say the Cook County Clerks office wasted no time confirming the news they WASTED NO TIME! We can only imagine its because the antics he tried to pull on the Chi-Town last year didn’t set well with authorities.
Smollett has remained quiet and off social media for over a year:
Its safe to say All Star Weekend is starting with a bang!
What’s your 2 cents?!
