Jussie Smollett Facing Up To 48 YEARS Behind Bars

Jussie Smollett

Jussie Smollett has been hit with an additional 15 counts of filing a false police report by a grand jury and is now facing up to 48 years behind bars.

The Empire actor was initially charged with one Class 4 Felony charge of disorderly conduct last month but a grand jury has applied that charge 15 times over in an 36-page indictment that was returned on Thursday.

Now, he is facing a maximum sentence of 48 years behind bars and fines of up to $400,000.

He is expected to cut a plea deal with authorities, according to experts cited by ABC.

Neither Smollett’s legal team nor Cook County prosecutors have commented on the new indictment which was first reported by CWB.
