Grand Jury Indicts Jussie Smollett On 16 Felonies

According to Reuters, actor Jussie Smollett has been indicted on 16 felony counts for lying to police.

The latest indictment accuses Smollett of falsely reporting that he was assaulted by two bigoted strangers.

A Cook County grand jury returned the indictment after expanding the charges.

Last month, Smollett indicted on a single charge of making a false report to police in Chicago, which is defined as a form of disorderly conduct under Illinois state law.
