CHICAGO — A Cook County grand jury has returned a 16-count indictment against “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett.
The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed the indictment, which they said was returned by a grand jury on Thursday.
As Emily Zanotti of the Daily Wire tweets, the Smollett case isn’t over yet: “We are still waiting on the Feds to conclude their investigation.”
The Jussie Smollett case is not over. A grand jury just returned 16 additional felony counts against the Empire star. And we are still waiting on the Feds to conclude their investigation. t.co/SG3w4JNQ4n
