CHICAGO (WSVN) — Actor Jussie Smollett has been indicted on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct.
Smollett was initially charged with one count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office on Feb. 20.
However, a grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against the actor.
Smollet claimed he was the victim of a hate crime in Chicago where two men attacked him while allegedly making homophobic and racist remarks.
