    This is just the beginning. The grand jury found reason to charge him with 16 crimes. That is all this means. Sentencing is a long way down the road.

    LAWJussie Smollett Pleads Not Guilty To Charges He Faked Attack Against Himself

    Jussie Smollett has pleaded not guilty to 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct, maintaining his innocence amid allegations that he faked a possible hate crime against himself earlier this year. Smollett's legal team entered the plea Thursday at a courthouse in Chicago, while the Empire actor and singer looked on silently.

    The actor's plea comes just a month and a half after his original police report grabbed national attention. In the report filed in late January, Smollett told authorities that he had been jumped while walking through downtown Chicago just past midnight. According to the Empire star, who is black and openly gay and who plays a gay character on the television show, his two assailants verbally showered him with racial and anti-gay slurs — before physically assaulting him, pouring a chemical on him and leaving him with a rope wrapped around his neck.


    When it surfaced, the report elicited outrage from both his colleagues and national politicians. But within a month, the story appeared to unravel.


    Chicago police eventually arrested Smollett on suspicion that he had faked the incident "to promote his career," saying at a news conference last month that he paid his would-be attackers — brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo — to carry it out. Superintendent Eddie Johnson said that the two men implicated Smollett while under police interrogation and that authorities had the check that Smollett wrote them in payment to prove it.



    "As more evidence, such as text messages, phone records, social media records, bank records, surveillance video and the receipt from the purchase of the rope was obtained by investigators, the investigation shifted from a Hate Crime to a Disorderly Conduct investigation [against Smollett]," prosecutors explained in their bond proffer.

    Smollett, meanwhile, vehemently defended himself against what his legal team — in a statement last month — called "an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system."

    "There has been a lot of misinformation in this case that's been presented as fact and evidence against Mr. Smollett that is demonstrably false," his attorney Tina Glandian said after a hearing Tuesday in Chicago, as her client walked quickly past the media scrum. "We welcome cameras in the courtroom so that members of the media can see the actual evidence — and what we feel is actually going to be a lack of evidence — against Mr. Smollett. And we look forward to complete transparency and the truth coming out."


    The actor's colleagues on Empire wasted little time in responding to the allegations. In a statement released just a day after his arrest, the show's producers said that they "care about him deeply" and that they were placing "trust in the legal system as the process plays out."


    But they added: "We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show, and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove [Smollett's] role of 'Jamal' from the final two episodes of the season."


    A grand jury in Cook County, Ill., indicted Smollett on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct last week. Each count carries a possible penalty of up to three years in prison.


    Smollett is expected to return to court in April.

    I saw something somewhere on tv that said, even though he wasn't required to show up, he strutted down the street and into court "like George Jefferson". I have to admit, they were right.

    Jussie Smollet needs to send thank you cards to R. Kelly, Felicity Huffman, and Lori Loughlin for taking some of the heat in the last few days.
