UPDATE: Empire star Jussie Smollett has been indicted for filing a false police report in connection to the alleged assault last month.

Cook County State’s Attorney’s office confirmed felony charges following a day hearings in front of a Grand Jury where evidence was presented by Chicago police.

Smollett faces a Class 4 felony and possibly 1 to 3 three years if found guilty.

******************************

Empire star Jussie Smollett has officially become a suspect for filing a false police report (Class 4 felony).

Detectives will be presenting evidence to a grand jury.

The Chicago Police Department tweeted out the news this afternoon:

The case began last month when Smollett claimed he’d been attacked by two men in MAGA hats who beat him, poured bleach on his head and put a noose around his neck.

Since the original reports, aspects of his story seem to be crumbling.

According to several outlets, Smollett was allegedly not happy that a threatening racist letter didn’t get a bigger reaction from his network. That was, reportedly, the impetus for a faked attack.

Which brings us to today.

If Smollett did make this story up, he harms every future victim who will perhaps not be believed.
