‘Actor’ and part-time hate-hoaxer (also acting) Jussie Smollett has been charged in Chicago for faking a hate crime and wasting police time.
“Empire” actor Jussie Smollett has now been charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false police report, the Cook County States Attorney says.
Disorderly conduct is a Class 4 Felony. CBS 2 Legal Analyst Irv Miller says Smollett could face probation to up to 1.5 years in prison.
He is expected in bond court tomorrow at 1:30 p.m.
No one in the media is being charged with anything. But Don Lemon is working through how Jussie could have gotten away with it.
The punishment for Smollett’s indiscretion is probation to up to 18-months in prison.
