Jussie Smollett indicted on 16 felony counts by grand jury

’Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett has been indicted by a grand jury in Chicago on 16 felony counts after allegedly lying to police about being the victim of a racist and homophobic hate crime. Smollett’s attorney labelled the indictment he faces as ’overkill’, ’vindictive’ and a ’desperate attempt to make headlines’. Smollett is facing a maximum sentence of 48 years behind bars.

He'll get off with a plea bargain and avoid jail most likely... Pay a massive fine I would like the courts to make an example of him to deter others, and chuck him in jail, but I just can't see it happen. I'll happily be proven wrong though.

Just remember, if, by some absurd series of events, the Chicago PD did find some MAGA hat wearing people somewhere within 100 miles of the place where the hoax took place, Jussie would have eventually testified that these people committed a crime knowing that they were innocent. This guy would send innocent people to prison in order to increase his paycheck. Lock him up.

If he is found guilty of any or all of these charges, I challenge Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and any other social media to permanently ban him and delete all posts he has ever made.

This is possibly the funniest story ever. I couldn’t have come up with anything as perfectly scripted yet so profoundly damaging to my political enemies had I lived to be a hundred lol.

Actions have consequences Smollett and lying through falsification of a very serious police report which could have had major political repercussions is not solved with a simple slap on the wrist. You blind Trump hater dick.
