A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, according to court records.
The Cook county State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed the indictment, which they said was returned by a grand jury on Thursday.
Smollett was originally charged with one felony count of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office on Feb. 20.
Now the grand jury has returned 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.
