r. kelly out (for the moment); jussie smollett in.
great balls of indictment.
ever since this was reported today,
the foxholers have been on it.
thank you for the emails and dms.
so jussie has been indicted by the grand jury in his alleged hoax case.
ummmmmmm via “the daily mail”…
Jussie Smollett has been hit with an additional 15 counts of filing a false police report by a grand jury and is now facing up to 48 years behind bars.
The Empire actor was initially charged with one Class 4 Felony charge of disorderly conduct last month but a grand jury has applied that charge 15 times over in a 36-page indictment that was returned on Thursday.
Now, he is facing a maximum sentence of 48 years behind bars and fines of up to $400,000.
He is expected to cut a plea deal with authorities, according to experts cited by ABC.
Neither Smollett’s legal team nor Cook County prosecutors have commented on the new indictment which was first reported by CWB.
DailyMail.com obtained a copy of it this afternoon. It divides the 15 new charges into two sets.
Counts one to seven apply to the comments he made to police officer Muhammed Baig, who first responded to his apartment when his friend called 911 on January 29.
The second set applies to Detective Kim Murray who interviewed him later that day.
48 year bid?!?!?
he will die in prison.
that is crazyyyyyyy.
if i was him,
i’d take the plea and get a lesser charge.
he could be out in 5 to 6 years.
his hardcore stans think the police set him up.
i don’t know about that angle,
but i was open to seeing that twist.
what a way to ruin your career tho.
i know he wishes he just sat there and ate his food.
no pun intended.
