Jussie Smollett just can’t catch a break.

The former ‘Empire’ actor was indicted on Tuesday (February 11th), in Chicago by a special prosecutor, Dan Webb, who is currently investigating Smollett’s hate-crime attack that took place in January 2019.

Webb was appointed by a Cook County judge to continue the investigation in looking into the false allegations after the case was dropped by the state’s attorney’s office.

As of right now, the actor has been charged with six counts, with one of them being disorderly conduct. The actor is due in court on February 24th.
