SPECIAL PROSECTOR INDICTS JUSSIE SMOLLETT ON SIX FELONY CHARGES FOR ALLEGED HATE CRIME HOAX
Wednesday, Feb 12, 2020
Not so fast, Jussie Smollett! Chicago special prosecutor Dan Webb reopened Smollett’s case and after 6 months of investigating, has indicted him on 6 felony charges yesterday stemming from his alleged 2019 hate crime attack—despite the dismissal of Jussie’s previous charges for filing a false report. In a released statement released, Webb questioned Cook County attorney Kim Foxx’s decision to drop the original charges.
“Based on the recommendation of the OSP, a Cook County grand jury returned a six-count indictment charging Jussie Smollett with making four separate false reports to Chicago Police Department officers related to his false claims that he was the victim of a hate crime, knowing that he was not the victim of a crime,” the statement read.
Jussie is expected in court on February 24. What do you think of these new charges? Tune in to see what our Dish Nationhosts think.
