‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett lies about being victim of hate crime; gets indicted on 16 felony counts by Grand Jury

The charges stem from a Jan 29 incident where Smollett, 36, had claimed that he was attacked by 2 men while leaving a restaurant in Chicago.

The actor (openly gay), alleged that the suspects, one of whom was wearing a red Make America Great Again hat, shouted racial & homophobic slurs before they attacked him.

After an investigation, the authorities said Smollett falsely reported to the Police that he had been attacked by 2 men.

The actor was previously charged in a criminal complaint with felony disorderly conduct, involving lying to police.

The crime carries a felony charge, and if Smollett is found guilty he could face up to 3 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.

According to Variety, a Cook County grand jury returned a more thorough indictment on Friday.

Eight of the charges involve false statements given to Officer Muhammed Baig, while the other 8 pertain to a more detailed account given to Detective Kim Murray.

“Jussie Smollett knew that at the time… there was no reasonable ground for believing that such offenses had been committed,” stated the indictment.

Police believes that Smollett had paid the two suspect, Ola & Abel Osundairo, USD 3,500 to stage the attack.

Smollett’s potential role in the alleged attack emerged after reports stated that he was not cooperating with the Police.
