Empire Star Is Fucked! Grand Jury Hits Jussie Smollett With 16 Counts

The City of Chicago will have no mercy when it comes to Jussie Smollett.

Recently it was announced that the Empire actor has been indicted on 16 class four felony charges. This comes from a grand jury after he made false claims and staged his own hate crime. Last month the actor filed a false police report in Chicago back on January 29th. Thursday a grand jury multiplied charges which increased to a total of 16.

Furthermore, it’s necessary to point out that just one of the felony charges equates to a three-year sentence. Therefore, if found guilty on multiple counts the “Jamal” actor could face decades in jail. After weeks of confusion, it came out that Jussie Smollett used racism to stage an attack and increase his salary. Above all, it’s safe to say that Smollett will be dropped from Empire. The actor is set to be arraigned on March 14.

Above all, after authorities started investigating deeper, they believed that his brothers were in on the staged hate crime. At one point police couldn’t confirm if Jussie Smollet’s attack is real.

Was the Grand Jury excessive in the indictment? Will Jussie Smollett have a guilty verdict? Leave your comments below, and stay tuned to
