Jussie Smollett Pleads Not Guilty

Written by on February 24, 2020

Earlier this month ‘Empire‘ actor Jussie Smollett had been charged again over his alleged fake attack in Chicago. He’s now pleaded not guilty, and his team is pushing for a dismissal. A few weeks back, Smollett was indicted by a grand jury on six counts of disorderly conduct for reportedly lying to police about the 2019 attack. Special prosecutor, Dan Webb, claims Smollette “planned and participated in a staged hate crime attack, and thereafter made numerous false statements to Chicago Police Dept. officers.

While in court this morning, Smollett plead not guilty and his team filed a motion to dismiss the case. The actor is due back in court on March 18.
